Lasky-DeMille Barn on Vine Street, opposite the Capitol Records building, Hollywood

Lasky-DeMille Barn on Vine Street, opposite the Capitol Records building, HollywoodAlthough Los Angeles has a well-earned reputation of putting the wrecking ball to its architecture, it’s heartening to know that at least one of its most historic buildings remains intact. The rickety barn shown here originally stood at Selma and Vine in Hollywood. In December 1913, Cecil B. DeMille rented it for use during the production of “The Squaw Man” (1914), the first feature filmed in the Hollywood area. It was later moved to the Paramount lot, then subsequently to the Hollywood Palace Theater on Vine Street (now known as Avalon Hollywood) opposite the iconic Capitol Records building. It now sits opposite the Hollywood Bowl and houses the Hollywood Heritage Museum.
