“Historical LA: El Pueblo de Los Angeles, Olvera Street & Union Station Exploration, with an Artist and Preservationist”

Fifth generation Angeleno and artist, as well as Cartwheel Art Tours Host, Teale Hatheway led groups from the Airbnb Open on a walking tour of the birthplace of Los Angeles, El Pueblo de Los Ángeles.

While guests were with Teale on Thursday November 17th, they learned about the district, that’s centered on the old plaza and popularly identified as Olvera Street, which was the city’s center under Spanish, Mexican and United States rule through most of the 19th century.

Teale showed the guests the oldest surviving residence in Los Angeles, which immersed them in the Spanish mission system that developed California under European rule as well as beautiful Union Station, the transit hub of LA. Through the Neighborhood Explorations led by Teale, guests experienced the archaeological evidence of dramatically shifting cultural districts in the heart of oldest Los Angeles.

Highlights by Teale, an advocate of historic preservation, was introducing guests to the details of local design history, from Adobe to Art Deco, which inspire her abstract architectural paintings.

Contact Cindy to have her organize a unique and immersive experience, with Teale, for your private group or organization.
