“After hearing the story of the Mountain Mermaid

 I immediately renewed my membership to the Los Angeles Conservancy

 and made a donation!  Anyone interested in preservation

of historical structures will love the fascinating back story on the

restoration process. It's probably the most dramatic story

 I've yet heard about the rescue of a historical building by one person.”

“How does one express in words what one experiences most deeply?

Sunday morning, February 8, dawned bright and crisp.

The rising sun brushed Topanga’s mountains with a patina of gold,

the breeze whispered its secrets, and a red-tailed hawk rode the thermals

flaunting the brightest red I’ve ever seen in the wild.

How can one be any happier?

The heart would burst with joy with one more beautiful experience.

That afternoon, the Da Camera Society brought the Moscow String Quartet to

the Mountain Mermaid and continued the morning’s transcendental joy”.

The Mountain Mermaid is located in the hills above

Los Angeles in Topanga Canyon, the celebrated vortex of art and eccentricity,

surrounded by what is now the largest urban park in America,

the stunning Santa Monica Mountains.


This historic 1930s architectural gem is situated on several mountain-view acres

  of rural bliss with lush gardens, fountains, and meandering pathways.

The Mountain Mermaid is a local watering hole for town meetings an memorials,

and is a popular location for filmmakers and photographers.


Nature, serenity, and beauty are the prime amenities at this bucolic retreat.

The Mountain Mermaid is a horticultural gardens dedicated to

the preservation of our architectural, cultural and natural history.
