NORTHEAST NEWSPAPERS Publications date to 1905 [Newspaper Article] — Highland Park News-Herald & Journal — 31 August 1988
NORTHEAST NEWSPAPERS Publications date to 1905 The present day Highland Park News-Herald &amp; Journal, oldest of the eight newspapers which make up the Northeast Newspapers, was not the first in this part of Los Angeles. In the 1880’s a newspaper called The Garvanzan 1 was founded. It thrived during the real estate &lt; boom of the 1800’s, but the crash when it came - proved too much for the paper. The Highland Park Herald was founded in 1905 by Sam Wheaton, a meat market owner and real estate promoter, but he kept the paper only five weeks before selling it to Charles Randall for $lOO. Randall, a newspaper man from Nebraska, had political ambitions, being elected to the California legislature in 1910 and to the U.S. Congress in 1916 on the Prohibition ticket. When he went to Washington, he sold the paper to Harlan G. Palmer. Palmer, who also published the Hollywood Citizen, kept the Herald two years before selling it to David C. Welty, a local commercial printer. I...
Mail bags tossed onto train [Newspaper Article] — Highland Park News-Herald & Journal — 31 August 1988
Mail bags tossed onto train “As the train slowed down at the little Highland Park station, we rushed out of the grocery store and threw the mail bags into the car. The engine slid along the track—it never came to a complete stop—slowly gathered speed and continued on to Los Angeles and we went back to the store to wait on customers who came to buy shoes, crockery or groceries.” So stated Mrs. Louise Stockdale in the Sept. 6, 1929 issue of the NewsHerald, as she described how mail was started on its way from the first Highland Park post office in 1890. A combined general store and post office housed all the business and was the only store in the entire district. J. P. Stockdale, the first postmaster, instituted the service to attract customers to his grocery store. He cancelled letters and weighed packages for postage when no one was waiting at his counters. When a customer arrived he deserted his duties as a postmaster to become a grocer. Sightseeing trips were not unknown in the ea...

Heritage Square preserves best of 1890*8 architecture [Newspaper Article] — Highland Park News-Herald & Journal — 31 August 1988
Heritage Square preserves best of 1890*8 architecture Heritage Square, the architectural park which currently houses eight turn of the century buildings, had its beginnings 20 years ago, with an attempt to save two houses from Bunker Hill. The two, known as Donegan’s Castle and the Salt Box, were considered to be fine examples of early Los Angeles architecture, and were to be restored to original elegance. The first two houses were destroyed by arson from vandals, but as the years went by Heritage Square became home to a number of architecturally important structures which faced demolition at their home site. The Square is currently operated by the Cultural Heritage Foundation, a fund-raising adjunct of the city’s Cultural Heritage Board. The CHF is headquartered in Pasadena. First house moved to the site was Hale House, located for many years on North Figueroa Street. The building, constructed in 1888 for approximately $3500, remains the best known building in the Square, and was f...
Group strives to save reminders of past [Newspaper Article] — Highland Park News-Herald & Journal — 31 August 1988
Group strives to save reminders of past The Highland Park Heritage Trust, a child of the 1980’s, is striving to preserve the reminders of the 1880’s and other early days of the Highland Park community. The Heritage Trust, which grew out of an historic survey undertaken by the Highland Park Improvement Association, was established in 1980, and in the eight years since has established itself as an important link in the local volunteer community. Diane Barnwell, one of the HPHT’s founders, said the group is responsible for the certification of 19 of the 34 city cultural-his-torical monuments in Highland Park, and contributed efforts on several others. Two more historical monument certifications are in progress now, Barnwell said, with an additional two pending and 14 in the planning stages. Many of these are in the Mt. Washington area. A major concern of the Heritage Trust continues to be approval of two proposed Historic Preservation Overlay Zones for Highland Park, which have come to...

Occidental longtime part of community [Newspaper Article] — Highland Park News-Herald & Journal — 31 August 1988
Occidental longtime part of community Occidental College, well launched into its second century and with a new president at the helm, remains one of the major educational institutions in the city of Los Angeles, and a longtime part of the Highland Park community. Bom in Boyle Heights in 1887, the college survived fire and economic downturns before moving to Highland Park in 1898. The college was located near what is now Avenue 50 and North Figueroa Street for some 16 years. Construction began in 1912 on the present campus, located in the hills between Eagle Rock and Highland Park. Founded as a Christian college by the Presbyterian Minsters Union of Los Angeles, the articles of incorporation for Occidental were approved on April 20, 1887, celebrated as Founders Day by the school. Most influential in the founding of the school was Dr. William Stewart Young, pastor of the Boyle Heights Presbyterian Church. Support came from community leaders such as J.G. Bell, Mrs. John Hollenbeck and ...

Highlands lay claim to first golf course [Newspaper Article] — Highland Park News-Herald & Journal — 31 August 1988
Highlands lay claim to first golf course A golf course, the first in Southern California, once lay on lush greens where today Highland Park businesses thrive and homes flourish. ibiaid out in a district once known ag I‘Cheviotdale Heights”—an area near the Pasadena border bounded by Avenue 64, La Loma Road and Colorado Boulevard—the nine hole golf course became the center of social activity for many Los Angeles socialites and industrial leaders. It was part of a 2200-acre “gentleman’s ranch” bought in 1883 by Andrew Campbell-Johnston, an Englishman with Scotch ancestry who was attracted to the area by its great natural beauty. The story goes that CampbellJohnston purchased the land quite as much for his own pasttimes as for ranching purposes. It seems he had been an enthusiastic follower of golf in England, and having expressed to a friend, Captain E. P. Tomkinson, another Englishman, his desire to play the game on the ranch, the cap- tain volunteered to lay out a ninehole course fo...
