Tour the Tujunga Hotel
Saturday, June 4th at 10:00am
(Now Foothill Retirement)
6720 Saint Esteban
Two blocks below Foothill off Tujunga Canyon Road. Park on the street. Meet in the front courtyard.
Built in the 1930's the Tujunga Hotel was a typical health resort fashioned in the tourist-pleasing Mission style. It was the location of the "Sister Elsie Well" which served as a tangible relic of the Mission days. Today that same gorgeous building is home to Foothill Retirement, an assisted living facility. The architectural features, and the well, have been lovingly restored.
