Rediscovering Los Angeles — The Hopperstead House

Jan. 27, 1936, Rediscovering Los Angeles

Jan. 27, 1936: Times artist Charles Owens and columnist Timothy Turner visit the Hopperstead home, which was built at Hill and Court streets in 1880. When Turner wrote this column, family members were still living in a portion of the house, while other parts were rented out to roomers.

Miller Hopperstead’s house was built with balconies on three of its sides from which the family used to look over all that was Los Angeles, lying eastward and north and south of them. In flood time they used to count the houses and barns floating down the Los Angeles River.

Fans of the Los Angeles River, please note.
