From Hughes to HerculesFrom Hughes to Hercules

Join the Los Angeles Conservancy for a very special tour of the Hercules Campus, the former Hughes Aircraft Company, in Playa Vista on Saturday, October 24! The Conservancy held a tour of this historic campus in 2011, when new owners The Ratkovich Company had just begun a preservation project to adapt the buildings to new uses. The property stood fading and mostly empty for years prior to its purchase. Now that it’s been beautifully renovated, we’re invited back for the big “reveal”! Renamed the Hercules Campus, many of the site’s transformed historic buildings are thriving and in use by technology and creative firms such as YouTube and 72andSunny. This year's 90-minute tour will highlight the historic aspects of the campus as well as the innovative adaptive reuse of the buildings and the landscaping. The tour will include access to several interiors, including the Cargo Building (the enormous wooden structure built to house construction of the H-4 Hercules heavy transport craft, more commonly known as the "Spruce Goose"). Timed tour entry, with tours starting between 10:00 AM – 3:15 PM $35 general public; $25 Conservancy members; $15 students; $10 kids 12 and under For details and reservations, visit laconservancy.org/hercules
