Mount Washington Landmarks
Self Realization Fellowship
What originally was a hotel for the early movie super stars, the Self Realization Fellowship Headquarters, founded by Paramahansa Yoganad, is a beautiful destination with superb views of Los Angeles. It is an historical, spiritual, and architectural landmark that helps to define Mount Washington.
Southwest Museum of the American Indian
This amazing museum, partnered with the Autry, holds the second largest collection of Native American artifacts in the United States. Due to it being combined with the Autry and the costs associated with properly preserving many of its artifacts, the museum is open during limited hours typically on Saturdays from 10am-5pm. Most of the artifacts are now stored at the Autry Center near the LA Zoo.
