Historic Resources Survey

The Historical Society, in partnership with the City of Torrance, is preparing to survey the significant and original housing stock and other structures that were built during the formation of Torrance. This project will require each volunteer to survey one of the blocks of the Olmstead District. No knocking on doors is required, and we will train you. With your help, this monumental task of surveying 4,000 units in this area will be manageable - but we need your help. In other words, - Pick a block and take a walk!

If either the Names on the Wall Project or the Historic Resource Survey project interests you, and you would like to join with other like-minded people to work for the preservation and enhancement of our city's past, please contact the Museum by phone or via the website.
