“Feliz Adobe” – 4730 Crystal Springs Drive
Los Angeles Historic-Cultural Monument #401, declared 11/30/1988
This Spanish Revival-style adobe is the earliest building in Griffith Park. It was built by Jose Paco Feliz, the son of Jose Vicente Feliz, to whom the Spanish Crown granted the 6,647-acre Rancho Los Feliz. It was almost torn down in 1921 for the construction of the Wilson Golf Course; however Mayor George Cryer and William Mulholland championed its preservation. Bill Johnson, “The Keeper of the Greens”, and his wife lived in the adobe from 1931 to 1959. The adobe was remodeled, modernized, and enlarged in 1934.
The adobe is located opposite the courtyard from the Visitor Center. The building is now the offices for FilmLA. (Source: Mike Eberts, Griffith Park: A Centennial History)
