City Of Good Neighbors: Inside The Hawthorne Museum


This weekend I paid a trip to the new museum of the Hawthorne Historical Society. The room, deep inside the long-abandoned mid-century City Hall, is filled with reminders of the lost glories of the aerospace city. Northrop, The Beach Boys, the Cockatoo Inn, Holly’s… Poor Hawthorne. At least Quentin Tarantino shot Holly’s before it was torn down for an Auto Zone… and they still have Chip’s. A quick glimpse of historic Hawthorne.
