HISTORIC GILMORE ADOBE is not open to the public. The June 24 Historical Society event offers a rare opportunity to see the home built in 1852 that once was part of a 256-acre parcel.

Take a guided tour of the Historic Gilmore Adobe, including the house, grounds, orchard, vintage cars and even chickens during the 42nd annual Windsor-Square-Hancock Park Historical Society meeting Sun., June 24 at 3 p.m.

The home is not open to the public, so this is a rare opportunity, said Myrna Gintel.

“Saving CBS”

Speaker Adrian Scott Fine will talk on “Saving CBS.” He is Director of Advocacy for the Los Angeles Conservancy. Fine oversees the Conservancy’s outreach and advocacy on key preservation issues within Los Angeles.

Richard Battalgia will be installed as president at the event, which includes presentation of the Historic Landmark award. Other officers are Damona Hoffman, Myrna Gintel, Carol Wertheim and Fluff McLean.

The Historic Gilmore Adobe is located between the Farmers Market and The Grove at Third and Fairfax.

Built in 1852

The Gilmore Adobe was built in 1852 and has served the Gilmore family since Arthur Gilmore purchased the house and 256 acres in 1880. It has been converted to the Farmers Market administrative offices.

Tickets are $45 for members and $60 for nonmembers. Reservations are required by Mon., June 18, and can be made through PayPal.
