HistoricPlacesLA is an inventory of Los Angeles's "architecturally significant buildings and places of social importances, as well as historic districts, bridges, parks, and streetscapes." This online tool was created using data from SurveyLA, through a collaboration between the City of Los Angeles and the Getty Conservation Institute. These survey data have been integrated with other resources and processed using Arches, an open-source geospatial software, to create a searchable cultural heritage inventory of the region. Visitors can find resources two ways: through the "Map View" or the "Search" in the menu at the top of the page. The site offers ample search tips for getting started and some featured searches, such as "Modernism in LA," "Pre-1900 Los Angeles," and "Los Angeles Historic Cultural Monuments," which includes Grauman's Chinese Theater. The featured search "The Entertainment Industry" includes landmarks such as one of Liberace's houses and the Palomino Club, where country music stars such as Patsy Cline, Johnny and June Cash, Merle Haggard, Gram Parsons, and Jerry Lee Lewis played until it closed in 1995.
