Los Angeles State Historic Park (LASHP) is a state park of California, United States, preserving buildings and grounds that are associated with the history of Los Angeles. The park consists of two areas, both located in East Hollywood, adjacent to the Elysian Park neighborhood: the Getty House Museum and Gardens and the Petersen Automotive Museum. The museum district includes the Charles M. Schreeder Mansion, the Dr. Frederick Tichenor House, the John A. Wilson House, the Royle House, and the Earl W. Brydges House. Other attractions include the Walt Disney Concert Hall, the Dorothy Chandler Pavilion, and the Greek Theatre.
The park was established on September 4, 1965, and has been operated by the Los Angeles Conservancy ever since. In 1970, an additional 1.5 miles along the Walk of Fame trail were added to create what would become known as the “Dolby Trail.”
On January 21, 2011, LASHP suffered severe damage from the massive earthquake that struck Southern California during the early morning hours; although no fatalities resulted, more than 30 people died in the quake itself. Following the earthquake, officials closed down the park for five months of recovery efforts, finally reopening it on June 12, 2012, with a public ceremony at 3 p.m. led by actor Anthony La Penna.
Since that time, there have been several special events held at the park including musical performances by Jack Johnson, Lady Gaga, and Imagine Dragons, among others. During the 2016 season, the park saw attendance increase by nearly 20% over the previous year.
