Designed in the Byzantine Revival style, the Wilshire Boulevard Temple reminds me of my own and only trip to Istanbul and visiting the Haga Sofia and other great churches and temples of Byzantium. Massive and mysterious, the interior is opulent with black marble, inlaid gold, rich mosaics, rare woods and exquisite murals depicting the history of the Hebrews (by Hugo Ballin).

The temple is located at 3663 Wilshire Blvd. (at the corner of Hobart Boulevard). It has been declared an Historic-Cultural Monument in the City of Los Angeles (No. 116) and is also on the National Register of Historic Places.

The Spanish Colonial Revival style house was designed by architects Samuel Tilden Norton and Frederick H. Wallis as a home for Norton and his wife Esther Groedel whom he had married in New York on October 17, 1904. The firm Norton & Wallis received many important commissions during their partnership including the Greek Theater in Griffith Park and the Temple Sinai East (now the Korean Philadelphia Presbyterian Church). Norton also collaborated with architects David Allison and Abram Edelman on the design of the Wilshire Boulevard Temple dedicated in 1929.

The Norton House is located at 66 Fremont Place in the historic Windsor Square neighborhood of Los Angeles, California. Please do not use this image in any media without my permission. © All rights reserved.
