On April 24, 2023, Historian Paul Ayers will present “ The Cabin Culture of the Arroyo Seco” at the Altadena Historical Society’s Spring program in the Altadena Community Center, 730 E. Altadena Drive, at 7:00 pm.
By News Desk
The show examines a lost recreational community that thrived on the upper Arroyo Seco in the first half of the Twentieth Century. Spurred on by a Forest Service program that offered cheap cabin leases and facilitated by a County Road that was the original planned route of the Angeles Crest Highway, the area became the home to three major resorts and over 150 cabins.
Ayers’ presentation will begin with a history supported by photos of the cabins, resorts, and the Arroyo Road. This will be followed by a look at what remains today, arguably Los Angeles County’s largest set of surviving ruins. The program, free to AHS members, is open to the public. Donations are gratefully accepted.
