Paul Revere Williams' Former House is Under Threat

Website: https://www.laconservancy.org/issues/paul-revere-williams-house?utm_term=The%20L.A.%20Conservancy%20submitted%20a%20Historic-Cultural%20Monument%20%28HCM%29%20nomination&utm_campaign=UpcomingEvents&ut

From Los Angeles Conservancy:

The former home of architect Paul Revere Williams is currently for sale and marketed for redevelopment. Williams and his wife Della Mae resided in this Craftsman-style house for thirty years.

The L.A. Conservancy submitted a Historic-Cultural Monument (HCM) nomination for Paul Revere Williams' House to ensure its protection. The Los Angeles Cultural-Heritage Commission is set to review the nomination on September 2, 2021.

Despite the fact that he was among the more prominent architects in California, if not the country, racial housing covenants prevented Williams from designing and living in his own dream home until 1951. This modest home in the West Adams area represents the vast challenges Williams overcame as well as the extraordinary achievements he made during an era of racial injustice. While living here, he designed such landmarks as the Golden State Mutual Life Insurance building and the iconic additions to The Beverly Hills Hotel.

Help preserve the Paul Revere Williams House by designating it as a Historic-Cultural Monument (HCM)!

Submit written comments in support of the nomination to the following: 
The subject line should read: Support Paul Revere Williams House Historic-Cultural Monument.
