Straightening the Echo Park Lake Lighthouse

Eastsider LA checks in on work at the Echo Park Lake boathouse, which is getting a renovation separate from the big overhaul at the lake. The "80-year-old, Spanish Colonial building" has a 35 foot tall lighthouse that was, until recently, a bit tilty: "Not only did workers have to repair the tower’s historic features, including a copper collar and wood windows that had been covered with stucco, but they also had to straighten the tower, which was found to be leaning between two to three inches in the direction of the water." Work should finish up next month, but the boathouse won't reopen until the lake does next year. [Eastsider LA, image via]
