The Windsor Square-Hancock Park Historical Society will hold its annual home tour this year on Rossmore Avenue Sun., Oct. 6, from 1 to 5 p.m.

Five stately homes between Third and Sixth streets will be featured, including one once owned by Harry Warner, who mortgaged it to pay for the financing of the first talking picture, “The Jazz Singer.”

Proceeds from this year’s tour will go to fund a permanent monument sign to honor the oldest women’s club in our city, The Ebell of Los Angeles, on the corner of Lucerne and Wilshire Boulevards, event co-chair Richard Battaglia told the Chronicle.

“We have lots of new members helping us this year,” Battaglia added. Kiel Fitzgerald of Lucerne Avenue is heading the manpower, Brian Curran of Plymouth Avenue is heading the historic research, and Juliet Brumlik of Rossmore Ave., whose house is on the tour, is organizing the food installation. Jane Gilman is co-chair.

Battaglia added he was “impressed with all the wonderful businesses on Larchmont who have generously donated items for our silent auction.”

They are: Salt & Straw, Starbucks, Groundwork Coffee Co., Peet’s Coffee, Diptyque, Landis, Larchmont Beauty Center, The Barking Lot, Flicka, Larchmont Wine and Cheese, Village Pizza, Le Petite Greek, Jeni’s Ice Cream, Burger Lounge, Chevalier’s Books and Sweet Fin.

Also, Anne Mansour Interior Design, Wilshire Country Club, Larchmont Village Florist and Larchmont Sanctuary Spa.

Tour tickets are $50 for members and $60 for non-members.

The ticket price includes five great homes, food, beverages, antique cars on site and a silent auction, said Battaglia. Non-members can join the Society for a discounted membership of $25 in person on the day of the tour.

Tickets can be purchased online at wshphs.com or on the day of the tour at Fourth and Rossmore.
