City Gems: Guided Tour
West Adams Heritage Association's 26th Annual Holiday Tour & Progressive Dinner

“The West Adams Heritage Association presents its annual Holiday Tour and Progressive Dinner. During this three-hour event, a guide takes diners from residence to residence, while each course — appetizers and champagne, soup, salad, waiter-served main course, and dessert — is consumed in a different West Adams home. This special opportunity to view beautiful historic homes while wining, dining, and celebrating the holiday season focuses this year on the vibrant neighborhood of Wellington Square. Most of the homes here were built during the 1920s in a variety of architectural styles and style hybrids, including Spanish, Norman, and Tudor. The homes on this year's tour include two 1920s Spanish Colonial Revivals, a Dutch Colonial Revival built in 1919, a 1922 Mediterranean Revival, and two Colonial Revival homes from 1922. One of these homes, which belonged to Dorothy Dandridge's mother, features exquisite hand-painted murals in three rooms and a charming clinker brick fireplace with a semi-precious stone inlaid mantel.”
