HISTORY

The Arts District on the eastern side
of Downtown Los Angeles between
Alameda Street and the L.A. River
is a historic warehouse area.
In 1869 Phineas T. Banning established
railroad tracks to the San Pedro harbor.
On May 31, 1887 the Santa Fe Railroad
reached Los Angeles and connected
the booming city with America's railway
system.
After the decline of the local industry
in the 1960's artists and musicians
moved into the abandoned factories,
buildings, lofts and warehouses.
