Breed St. Shul Case Study & Site Tour
The Breed Street Shul in the Boyle Heights neighborhood is listed in the National Register of Historic Places and is designated as a Los Angeles Historic-Cultural Monument. The original wood frame 1915 building was recently rehabilitated for use as an arts, educational, and cultural center. The Byzantine Revival unreinforced 1923 building with beautiful stained glass and folk art murals has been stabilized.
There will be a tour of the property and a panel discussion about historic preservation in Los Angeles. Hear from a group of experts how local, state and federal historic preservation policies both protect and provide incentives to rehabilitate historic buildings. There will be a presentation on how the Shul property was preserved and transferred to a non-profit; where grant funds were secured; what has been implemented; and plans for the future of the Shul buildings.
