MILLER'S HALL Time finally caught up [Newspaper Article] — Highland Park News-Herald & Journal — 17 October 1963
MILLER'S HALL Time finally caught up By FRED ALLEN Miller’s Hall, the grandaddy of the Highland Park business district, was demolished in June of 1959. Tattered and creaking with age, the two-story wood frame building at 6307-11 York Blvd. was condemned a month earlier by the city building and safety department. Built in 1885 by William Miller, just 20 years after the end of the Civil War, the structure was the scene of countless civic gatherings and lodge meetings. The hall had been witness to the growth of a community from open fields and watering hole, to a thriving business and residential district. CRUMBLING WALLS Passersby looking up at the weatherbeaten structure could see where the woodpeckers had feasted on the molding of the big gable that jutted out from the center of the second floor. At the side of the hall the rain spout had crumbled and fallen to the ground; nails on the wood siding were falling out and some of the boards had buckled. Thuosands of hands had turned the...

'Successful Failure' Old Cycleway, dream of the 90 s fizzled [Newspaper Article] — Highland Park News-Herald & Journal — 17 October 1963
'Successful Failure' Old Cycleway, dream of the 90 s fizzled Under the caption “A Successful Failure,” the April 1931 issue of the magazine, Southern California Business, carries the story concerning the old Los Angeles - Pasadena cycleway, sections of which remain intact to this day along the side of the Arroyo Seco: “One of the dreams of the gay nineties was the linking of Los Angeles and Pasadena by ‘cycleway,’ to make nine miles of smooth thoroughfare for businessmen to the city, and for pleasure jaunts. This project seems laughable today, with hundreds of autos skimming hourly over wide asphalt roads between the two cities. “H. M. Dobbins of Pasadena was the moving spirit of the project who obtained by condemnation the right to build an elevated way for bicycles, tricycles or horseless carriages. A plan of financing was worked out, and the Title Insurance and Trust Company made trustee for the cycleway bonds, which were issued in 1898. “The cycleway was planned to be 20 feet hi...

Sycamore Grove once beer garden [Newspaper Article] — Highland Park News-Herald & Journal — 17 October 1963
Sycamore Grove once beer garden By FEED ALLEN Except for a saloon in Sycamore Grove, Highland Park might never have become annexed to Los Angeles, a city that marks its 183 rd birthday this year. The Grove, where 250,000 people came last year to break bread against the scenic backdrop of the Arroyo Seco, was under fire in the 1890’s from the clergy of Highland Park. Demon rum was sold in the roadhouses! Only solution to the problem, said the church leaders, was for Highland Park to incorporate as a separate city or become annexed to the growing City of the Angels. Since incorporation seemed impossible, annexation was the answer. Highland Park joined Los Angeles in 1898, and a short time later Sycamore Grove became “dry." JUDGES ‘REFRESHED' Clergymen were probably spurred in their anti-liquor move by circuit riding judges who came from neighboring Glendale to try cases in Highland Park. An exhausting trip in those days, the barristers would sometimes stop at Sycamore Grove to freshen...

LET THERE BE MUSIC Symphony Association hits high note here In 1946 the greatest artistic venture in the history of Highland Park was started the founding of our community symphony orchestra. Since then the orchestra has grown to be one of the best known of its type in Southern California.

Councilman and Mrs. John Holland, J. Arthur Lewis, and Helen Phillips Cordell were among those present.

PASSING OF A MOVIE HOUSE Park Theatre exits H. P. scene By Frank Whitaker Like the demise of the trolley car and the corner cigar store, another famous Highland Park landmark faded from the modern scene last May with the closing the Park Theatre here, and announcement that the 27-year-old cinema house would become part of Peoples Department Store. Born just six years after the ’29 crash that sank this country into its worst depression in history. “The building of the Park” became more or less a symbol of the renewed hope and faith that characterized the recovery period through the late '3os and into the booming '4os. THEATER That’s the year David L. Cantor and his partners sold their chain of theatres in Washington state and moved to Highland Park, because “There are more indications of present and future improvements here than in any place we have seen in Southern California.” For their new theatre adventure they picked an empty lot on N. Figueroa near Ave. 59, which at that time w...
