Lafayette Square House, Walking Tour Scheduled

The first house and walking tour of Lafayette Square, a Los Angeles neighborhood of stately homes built from just before 1920 to the 1950s, will be held today from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m., beginning at St. Charles Place and Wellington Road.

Several homes designed by Paul Williams, one of the nation's most prominent architects and the first black member of the American Institute of Architects, will be on the tour, sponsored by the Los Angeles Conservancy and the Lafayette Square Homeowners Assn.

Tour tickets are $6 for the public, $5 for Conservancy members, and are tax-deductible. In case of rain, the tour will be held on Jan. 27.
