Welcome to the website of the Windsor Square-Hancock Park Historical Society. We were established in 1976 as a California 501 (c)(3) corporation, with the mission of preserving the history of the greater Rancho La Brea area. We do this through events, publications and community outreach. We also support our mission by conducting historic research on local buildings, architects, and residents. Some of this research is on display every Fall in our annual Homes Tour, the longest-running in Los Angeles.

We urge you to explore our site to learn more about our organization and our very special neighborhoods. We welcome members from all geographic areas!
