THE HOME was moved in 1930 to its current location.

David Silverman of LA House Histories will give a presentation on Sun., May 19 from 2 to 5 p.m. at the O’Melveny House, 501 S. Plymouth Blvd. 

Designed by Sumner Hunt in 1908 and built at the corner of New Hampshire Ave. and Wilshire Blvd., the home was moved in 1930 to its current location.

After Henry O’Melveny’s death, it was purchased by a member of the Rindge family and includes actor David Arquette among recent owners.

Tickets for the Windsor Square-Hancock Park Historical Society event are available at the group’s website beginning May 1 at, president Richard Battaglia said.

Author and architectural historian Silverman writes custom-made books about the history of Los Angeles homes, commissioned exclusively for homeowners. Many of his works have chronicled the houses of classic Hollywood icons such as Shirley Temple, David O. Selznick, Cecil B. DeMille, Marlene Dietrich, and Frank Sinatra.

A native Angeleno, Silverman will speak about many of the houses he has researched, showing rare photos of the homes, their residents, and historic Los Angeles.
