This Week on 'Visiting With Huell Howser' -- Views from the Top
Monday @ 7:30PM -- "Modjeska House"
Huell visits renowned actress Helena Modjeska's historic house and gardens. Modjeska, who's still considered Poland's most famous actress, created the beautiful Orange County residence in 1876. Named for the grounds' resemblance to the Forest of Arden in the Shakespearean play "As You Like It," Arden is designated a National Historic Landmark. Coincidentally, Modjeska specialized in Shakespearean roles.

Huell takes the famous Palm Springs Aerial Tramway to the top of Mt. San Jacinto. Join him as he talks to the hikers who venture to the top for the astonishing views, abundant nature, and fresh air.
Wednesday @ 7:30PM -- "Lindbergh Beacon"
Huell traces the history of the Lindbergh Beacon, which was discovered at a city warehouse in the 1990s, restored to its original glory, and now shines over downtown Los Angeles from the top of City Hall. We also revisit Huell's original segment on the Beacon, when Project Restore rededicated the Beacon in the L.A.X. terminal after its 50-year absence.
