PISGAH HOME HISTORIC DISTRICT


NPS Number: 07001304
Description:
Pisgah Home Historic District is located in the Garvanza/Highland Park neighborhood in Los Angeles. Developed as the headquarters of the religious-based social service organization in the early twentieth century, Pisgah Home Historic District consists of eight buildings, seven of which contribute to the district’s significance. Constructed between 1895 and 1925. The district was listed at the local level of significance under Criterion A in the areas of religion, social history, and philosophy. It meets Criteria Consideration A for religious properties as it derives its significance from its importance in the historic development of religious organizations and social philanthropy in Los Angeles during the early twentieth century. The Pisgah Home Movement, founded by Dr. Finis E. Yoakum in 1895, was based on religious doctrine that emphasized service to the poor and social action over theology, and provided several social programs to the area’s expanding transient and unemployed population. This property was previously certified by the National Park Service for a federal tax credit as a rehabilitation project. It was also nominated and listed in the California Register of Historical Resources on 11/2/2001.
