Information about Los Angeles’ historic, cultural and architectural landmarks are now available on a single website thanks to a collaboration between the city and the Getty Conservation Institute, city officials announced Tuesday.

Mayor Eric Garcetti joined Getty executives to unveil www.HistoricPlacesLA.org, which features an interactive map to the city’s architecturally and historically significant districts, bridges, parks, gardens, streets and buildings.

“This system unlocks Los Angeles’ rich cultural history and puts it in the palm of anyone’s hand,” Garcetti said. “HistoricPlacesLA will enrich and enlighten visitors and Angelenos alike and will encourage people to truly explore our streets and be conscious of the history around us.”

Officials said the site was set up as a resource for policymakers, property owners, developers, visitors, students, history and architecture fans and other stakeholders.

The website includes information collected through SurveyLA, a partnership between the city and Getty to identify significant sites around the city, and will be continually updated.
