Altadena African-American Historic Resources Survey

The Department of Regional Planning (DRP) has completed a survey of historic resources associated with Altadena’s African-American community. The project was chosen because it supports the County’s effort to create a more equitable society by identifying valuable contributions by the County’s diverse communities and because it will complete one development theme of a broader Altadena survey that DRP hopes to work on in the future.

This survey:

  • Brings awareness to Altadena’s African-American history;
  • Identifies African-American historic resources so that they can be potentially preserved through the County’s Historic Preservation Ordinance;
  • Will inform policy for a Historic Preservation General Plan Element and/or community based plans; and
  • Will contribute information for a future Countywide African-American historical context statement and perhaps survey.


  • On Saturday, October 10, 2020, the completed survey was presented at an online community meeting. The recorded presentation is located here.
  • On Saturday, October 10, 2020 at 10:00 AM, DRP will present the completed survey at an online meeting.
  • On Saturday, August 1, 2020 at 2:00 PM, the County hosted an online meeting to inform the public about the purpose of the survey, solicit comments and information and allow for public participation. The presentation is here and the meeting recording is here.
