The History of Edendale

Check out the upcoming "Farmlab Public Salon" featuring Kevin Kuzma on Friday, June 26, 2009 at Noon. Free Admission.

Edendale: Where the Hollywood film industry was born

About the Salon:
This year marks the centennial of the first permanent movie studio to set up shop in Los Angeles. But that first studio and others that sprang up nearby where not located in Hollywood. They cranked out silent films several miles east in a village called Edendale, which straddled the border of what is now Echo Park and Silver Lake. The presentation will cover the founding of that first studio, Selig Polyscope, and the emergence and brief reign of Edendale as the center of the region's movie making business.

About the Salon Participant:
Angelino Heights resident Kevin Kuzma is president of the Echo Park Historical Society and the owner of Revival Arts Restoration, a preservation and restoration consulting company.
