International Institute of Los Angeles
435 S. Boyle Avenue
Los Angeles, California 90033

The International Institute-Los Angeles/Boyle Heights, is significant for its association with Progress Era reform, women's social movements, and patterns of immigration in Los Angeles.

As a community-serving institutions, the property represents Boyle Heights' ethno-racial diversity and is an excellent example of Spanish colonial Revival architecture in an institutional setting.
This is our first Historic Cultural Monument nomination, which is a part of our very long list for historic preservation in our treasured community of Boyle Heights that we are currently working.

We want to thank our wonderful supporters, who truly understand the importance of Historic Places.
