18th Annual Living History Tour
Every year, the West Adams Heritage Association presents a Living History Tour, featuring graveside portrayals at Angelus Rosedale Cemetery. Amongst the historic personages due for dramatic disinterment in 2008:
Monroe Salisbery, notable leading man of silent cinema.
Rev. Ashael Morgan Hough, one of U.S.C.'s founders.
Edward Lee Baker, Jr., a Buffalo Soldier in the Indian campaigns of the West and in the Spanish-American war.
Francisca de Paula (Dominguez) Alexander Fleming, great granddaughter of Juan Dominguez, the land grantee.
Valentine Wolfenstein, proprietor of L.A.'s first successful photography studio.
Ernestine Wade, radio performer and pioneering black actress.
Tickets are by advance reservation only, and tourgoers are assigned to specific, timed tours with guides. Tour takers are advised to wear walking shoes, as it will be necessary to travel over somewhat uneven grassy surfaces, and prepare for potentially hot weather with sunscreen, hats, and water. The tour lasts approximately three hours.
Tickets: $25 general admission, $20 WAHA members, paid by September 15th. After September 15th, pending availability, tickets $30. Children under ten years of age are free.
