Lincoln Heights Community Attractions
Lincoln Heights is considered to be the oldest neighborhood in Los Angeles. Located in central Los Angeles, Lincoln Heights is adjacent to both Interstate 10 (San Bernardino Freeway) and Interstate 5 (Golden State Freeway). In 2004, the Metro Gold Line light rail was opened in the area. New Lincoln Heights housing and shops have sprung up around the rail line and station. Revitalization plans for the Lincoln Heights area, including the Los Angeles River and Arroyo Seco, are sparking new interest in this historically significant suburb.
Children living in Lincoln Heights attend one of more than a dozen schools serving the area. Public schools are part of the Los Angeles Unified School District and include 5 charter schools. Also nearby is California State University: Los Angeles. The local branch of the Los Angeles Public Library is located on Workman Street. The LAPL is one of the largest publicly funded library systems in the world, boasting more than 6 million items in circulation. The Lincoln Heights Branch was developed in 1916 with funds from the East Coast millionaire, Carnegie. The building was later designated a Los Angeles City Historic-Cultural Monument and listed on the National Register of Historic Places.
Lincoln Heights is also home to The Brewery, one of the largest artist colonies in the world. Artists live and work in The Brewery, which also houses shops, restaurants, and galleries. Twice yearly, the artists open their homes for patrons to walk through, browse, and purchase art from the artists in their own workspace.
Lincoln Heights History
Like much of the surrounding area, what is now known as Lincoln Heights was originally the homeland of Gabrielino Native Americans. Falling under the control of white and Mexican ranchers in the late 1700s and early 1800s, Lincoln Heights was subdivided in 1873. Despite its close proximity to Los Angeles, it was considered to be "country" by wealthy downtown residents and was accessible only via streetcar. Rail availability attracted many types of businesses--many of which still thrive today—such as wineries, breweries, and bakeries. Throughout the 1900s, Lincoln Heights also became home to many Italian-Americans, Mexican-Americans, and Asian-Americans.} ?>
