Eugene W. Britt House

This Neoclassical mansion was designed by local architect Alfred F. Rosenheim, who also designed the nearby Second Church of Christ, Scientist. Reflecting the fine luxury homes of turn-of-the-century L.A., most of the fixtures and materials in the Britt House were imported, including Italian marble.

The house was meticulously restored and rehabilitated in 1982 for use as a public sports museum. It now serves as headquarters of the LA84 Foundation, a youth sports nonprofit created from the proceeds of the 1984 Olympic Games. Located in the West Adams Terrace Historic Preservation Overlay Zone, it won a 1984 Conservancy Preservation Award, and is a local, state, and nationally registered landmark.
