Hollyhock House – Frank Lloyd Wright’s first house in Los Angeles
Hollyhock House Rehabilitation (Hollywood) — Frank Lloyd Wright’s first house in Los Angeles, Hollyhock House, underwent a $20 million restoration and tours are now available from 12:30 to 3:30 p.m., Wednesday through Sunday.
Originally built for oil heiress Aline Barnsdall, the house sits in the middle of the 11-acre Barnsdall Park in Hollywood. More than $2 million was devoted to repairing earthquake damage to the house; the rest was used to implement phase I of the master plan for the park, which included replanting 1,000 olive trees along the hillside on Hollywood Boulevard. www.hollyhockhouse.net
