Paul Revere Was Here: Los Angeles Conservancy’s Walking Tour of Paul R. Williams in Beverly Hills
Paul Revere Williams (1894-1980) designed more than 2,000 structures across L.A. County. Known as the “architect to the stars,” Williams was often commissioned to design homes in neighborhoods which, due to racial covenants, he was not allowed to live in. Beverly Hills is one of those neighborhoods, and is a prime example of Williams’ prolificacy. On this tour, you’ll see residences and businesses in a variety of revisionist styles, and learn about Williams’ remarkable life and accomplishments— as well as the importance of protecting his legacy.
