Exploration: Eva Grisez Field Trip Observations

Students from the Los Feliz Charter School for the Arts (LFCSA) and the Living Museum Sycamore Grove are collaborating with Departures Youth Voices to document their exploration of the area and develop interactive tools that will become part of the Living Museum's community resources. Follow the students as they work with community residents and learn about the history of the neighborhood, urban planning, and placemaking.

Below are the student's observations from their field trip to the Sycamore Grove District in Highland Park. To read more about the trip click here.

I attend Los Feliz Charter School for the Arts and I am in 5th grade in Mrs. John's class.

We went to the Lummis House and explored Charels Lummis' findings and belongings. Some of the things we saw included plants, pictures, a typewriter, a couple of sabers, a musket, a guitar and many rocks from the Arroyo Seco River.

There were many pictures of family and friends of Charles Lummis that were taken in black and white. There were also many things that help us remember the important things Charles Lummis did.

Questions to investigate:

  • Did Charles Lummis have a wife? if so, did he have any children?
  • Why did Charles Lummis climb up the Grand Canyon and back down again with a broken arm and a dog?
