The West Adams district, one of Los Angeles' oldest neighborhoods, boasts an intriguing history (and a proud heritage association that loves to promote the glories of the district). Its Angelus Rosedale Cemetery, dating back to 1884, is the final resting place for an eclectic assortment of Angelenos, including war heroes, writers, and entertainers. Watch history comes to life at WAHA's Living History Tour. This year's tour, "Civil Wars, Civil Liberties,” enlivens the past with gravesite portrayals of notables including a Mack Sennett bathing beauty, USC’s first female professor, a jazz singer who performed with Duke Ellington’s orchestra, a Confederate cadet who helped found Pasadena, a Union Army bugler, a doctor who testified before the House UnAmerican Activities Committee during the Red Scare, and more.
