Historic Louis Zamperini House Devil at MY Heels "Special Showing"

Myers Home "The Fantasy Land of Art" Put Curser on the Picture

A treasure worth preserving. The homes you view are each in some phase of restoration. These modest homes were built for working people of Torrance between 1912-1929. Historic preservation joins ”Green Building” as the original ideal was to blend the home with nature using natural products. Today historic restoration compliments “Green Building” both with natural products and with “recycled” parts: flooring, windows, even bath tubs from scheduled demolitions. Each of the historic homes you see today is not just an old house; to each of the owners, it’s a treasure! Each values the quality and craftsmanship that when into the historic home, and each has chosen to embrace the “caretaker” role for the home so that it will not only be enjoyed by them, but generations to come. For each that means a major project of renovation and restoration. And the “Whimsical Home” by artistic duo, the Meyers is a “must see.” These homes demonstrate that we must “Save Historic Old Torrance” for the kids of tomorrow.
