The original Eagle Rock Branch of the Los Angeles Public Library was located at 2225 Colorado Boulevard. The library was funded by a $7,500 grant from Andrew Carnegie, which amounts to only $152,600 at today's rates. The original architect, W. E. Kleinpell, designed this Spanish style building, which opened in 1915. Mr. Charles Lummis, head of the Southwest Museum and owner of the Lummis Home, gave part of the inaugural address.
It served as the Eagle Rock Public Library from 1915-1923, then as a branch of the Los Angeles Public Library from 1923 to 1981 (now located at 5027 Caspar Avenue). In 1927, the building underwent an extensive remodel designed by Newton & Murray, using some of the original foundations.
In 1981, the old library closed because of non-conformity to code. In 1985, it was declared a Cultural Historical Landmark, and two years later it was placed in the National Register Of Historic Places.
In 1997, the former Eagle Rock Branch Library was rededicated after seismic upgrade as the Eagle Rock Community Cultural Center.
Now you can hunt on the grounds of the Center for a virtual geocache from the comfort of your own chair. Of course to log it, you'll have to get out and find the real cache...
Click the photo to begin. Here's a hint to get you started: look slowly and carefully with your mouse pointer....did you see that???
Be sure to find the virtual cache before going out to look for the real one!
