Beverly Hills Heritage exists to identify, recognize, preserve and promote the architectural, cultural and historic assets of the City of Beverly Hills through advocacy, education, and conservation for the purpose of maintaining a living legacy for residents and visitors alike. Due to the loss of many historical and/or architecturally significant landmarks, a number of dedicated historians, preservationists, and residents have volunteered to encourage the preservation of the physical character and cultural heritage of the City of Beverly Hills.
Beverly Hills Heritage cooperates with the City’s Cultural Heritage Commission, by bringing to public attention commercial and residential properties that generally should be preserved and those that may be marked for redevelopment before the preservation process may be completed. The newly formed Cultural Heritage Commission is the government body charged with identifying and recommending to the Beverly Hills City Council local architectural treasures that should be marked for preservation.
Beverly Hills Heritage will host its first annual Spring Gala and Fundraiser on Saturday, March 21, 2105, at the Anthony-Kerry House, the only Greene & Greene-designed residence in Beverly Hills and local landmark #14.
“Please join us in this rare opportunity to be immersed in the Arts and Crafts style! Whisk yourself away for an afternoon fête of like-minded guests for laughs, learning, light fare and libations hosted with legendary Beverly Hills flair! Our gala will feature two, hour-long, full property tours, led by Pasadena’s Gamble House Director Ted Bosley and an informal presentation on the objects and influencers of the Arts and Crafts Movement by Beverly Hills Heritage’s own Architecture and Design Historian Eleanor Schrader. Tours will begin at 3:00 and 5:30 p.m., with the lecture in between at 4:30 p.m.,” announced Beverly Hills Heritage Founder and President Kimberly Reiss.
