#789 Los Angeles Star
Southern California's first newspaper, the Los Angeles Star, was founded in this block on May 17, 1851, and for many years exerted a major influence upon this part of the state. Suspended temporarily from 1864 to 1868, it continued later as an effective voice of the people until its final termination date in 1879.
