Mt Washington

Mt. Washington is located in Northeast Los Angeles with Eagle Rock to the north, Highland Park to the east, Cypress Park to the southwest and Glassell Park to the northwest.  The borders are technically Division St., El Paso Dr., Marmion Way and Isabel St.  

Today this hilly community with its winding roads is a treasure-trove of lovely homes from historic Craftsman to homes built by notable architects such as John Lautner, James De Long, Gregory Ain, Rudolph Schindler and Fung + Blatt to name a few.  It is also known for it's phenomenal parks such as Moon Canyon Park, to watch the moon rise and Elyria Canyon Park, to hike and enjoy the 35 acres of of land protected by the Santa Monica Mountain Conservancy.  Mt Washington Elementary is another drawing point for the hill, with a reputation bar none and a community which supports it fully.

In the early 1900's, developer Robert Marsh built the Mount Washington Hotel at the summit.  With seven major studios at the base of the hill, the hotel was a favorite for film stars like Charlie Chaplin and Greta Garbo.  Eventually the studios moved to Hollywood and the hotel closed, going through several transformations before being purchased by Paramahansa Yogananda, founder of the Self-Realization Movement in 1925.  The building remains the world headquarters for the Self-Realization Fellowship.  Mt. Washington is also home to the Southwest Museum which relocated from downtown in 1914.  

It is a fabulous community 10 minutes to downtown, Pasadena or Glendale - central to so much but so far away from it all.
