The West Hollywood Preservation Alliance is a non-profit public benefit organization working to identify, protect and preserve the historic, architectural, and cultural resources of West Hollywood and adjacent areas through education, advocacy and assistance.
What We Do
- Advocate for saving buildings and places that are a part of West Hollywood’s rich cultural history.
- Raise awareness of this history through tours, lectures, and other educational events.
- Provide assistance, information, and support to residents who are interested in historic structures and sites throughout West Hollywood.
- Aid with access to preservation resources and help make the preservation process easier for residents and property owners.
- Work with the City to develop preservation incentives for property owners that make preservation, rehabilitation, and adaptive reuse more attractive and feasible.
How We Started
The West Hollywood Preservation Alliance came together through a union of concerned residents and employees of local businesses fighting to save various structures and sites throughout the City of West Hollywood: Plummer Park, Pickfair Studios, the Sunset Lanai, and 1343 N. Laurel Ave (Tara) to name a few. The demolition of the Edward Fickett designed West Hollywood Branch Library, fueled the urgency to organize a group dedicated to advocating for historic structures and sites in West Hollywood.
