Exploration: Sadie Brebes 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.

The Lummis house is a museum. It was made by Charles Lummis a while back. He made it from mostly big stones! An amazing landmark full of nature, awesome history, and beautiful scenery.

I saw an amazing house made from mostly stones! I saw a lot of nature which was wonderful. An amazing neighborhood, and an interesting staircase that Lummis went up for a quiet place to write the articles for the company "The LA Times." We also saw a cool house that was only 30 feet!

Questions to Investigate:

  • Who helped Lummis build the house?
  • How did Lummis move all the stones to make the house?
