All Are Invited To A Sunset Salute to Huell Howser
The many admirers of Huell Howser will gather in a salute to his memory at the Griffith Observatory in the City of Los Angeles on Tuesday, January 15, 2013 in a sunset ceremony, organized by Councilmember Tom LaBonge.
“Huell had a tremendous enthusiasm for California landmarks like the Griffith Observatory,” Councilmember Tom LaBonge, who represents the Fourth District of the City of Los Angeles. “And now we must say goodbye to our own California landmark, Huell Howser.”
Howser served as the longtime host of “California’s Gold,” the public television show on California places and people.
The show was a fun and entertaining way to learn about California history. Just recently, I had watched the show about Los Angeles’s street car tunnels and discovered to my surprise that an Italian restaurant (since closed) where we used to frequently lunch was the location of a downtown street car station. Who knew! Here is an interactive map of the many places that Huell covered on his show: click here
Huell was a resident of the Fourth District, LaBonge’s district, living on Rossmore Avenue. All members of the public are invited to gather, and a shuttle from the Greek Theatre parking lot will provide extra capacity for all who would like to come.
