Det skal I lave

Learn about life, death, demographics, and geographical expansion in early Los Angeles as we explore the history of the city's earliest efforts to dispose of the dead. Los Angeles in the 19th century was a Wild West town filled with illness, violence, and mystery. From the start, city and church officials were never able to keep up with the city's population, living or dead. You'll participate in a discussion of burial practices, explore the stories of those interred therein, and learn about the vital role these areas played as city parks. You'll also hear how the perception of cemeteries transitioned from a source of public pride to a form of public nuisance, including the city's slapdash efforts to disinter the bodies of thousands of pioneering Angelenos in the name of progress.
