Piper House

Los Angeles Historic Cultural Monument #540, 

Declared July 19, 1991

This Craftsman house was constructed in 1905 for William Neely. It contained elaborate mantles, one of which was cast concrete logs; and alabaster fixtures. Abandoned after the death of the owner in 1991, the home went through several hands due to the estate being handled through the courts and the house was burned to the ground by vandals on August 20, 1995. Several years later, two historic homes were moved onto the site by John Nese, known locally as "the king of pop" for his soda pop store, in conjunction with the Highland Park Heritage Trust.
