El Pueblo Park Association supports El Pueblo de Los Ángeles Historic Monument, the historic heart of Los Angeles. Founded by the Spanish in 1781, the modern city grew outwards from this area that still contains the city’s first graveyard, the city’s oldest church and house, multiple museums and exhibit halls, plus Olvera Street, the world famous Mexican marketplace.
To preserve this unique landmark and the educational opportunities it offers, the El Pueblo Park Association (EPPA) sponsors a variety of public programs and contributes funds to preserve and display artifacts.
Join us on Thursday, May 17 as we celebrate the 200th anniversary of the city’s oldest house at the Avila Adobe Wine Celebration . The first 50 premium tickets sold will receive a complimentary split of Avila Angelica wine.
At the Avila Adobe Wine Celebration, we will also be honoring Jean Bruce Poole, pictured below with Ynez Violé O’Neill, long time board member with families ties to Olvera Street. Poole was El Pueblo’s first curator from 1977 to 2001 and is co-author of El Pueblo: The Historic Heart of Los Angeles. She also founded the El Pueblo Park Association in 1982.
