Paving the Way: The Stories Behind the Names of L.A.’s Streets

On August 30 at 4:00 PM, join us for a special living history presentation of Paving the Way: The Stories Behind the Names of L.A.’s Streets. See
the characters from the exhibit come to life before your very eyes.
Witness as they recount their various tales of fame, fortune, heartache
and triumph and discover why the streets we all travel today are named
after these fascinating individuals. Admission to this very special
presentation is $10 for the general public and free for museum members.
Seating is limited, so be sure to RSVP by calling (323) 225-2700 ext. 223.
Paving the Way is generously sponsored by Morley Builders. The exhibit is included with admission and runs through September 30.
