Field trip to Union Station / Olevera Street

Students from NELA had the opportunity to learn much of the history and origins of Los Angeles by visiting Union Station and Plaza Olvera.

They had a chance to walk through the Christmas Festive train station halls and observe as passengers cross with luggage, or stop to admire the live music.  After, everyone walked across the street to see the oldest house in Los Angeles in Olvera Street. 

 They got to learn about the rich history of the area and the diverse groups that helped make Los Angeles what it is today.  

The trip ended at the Chinese American museum, where everyone learned about the many contributions of Chinese Americans in Los Angeles.
It was a great day filled with rich history and new experiences.
