Have you ever walked past this bench at Rancho Park and wondered who it is in honor of? Look no farther than my family! Victoria Harris is my wife’s grandmother who moved to Cheviot Hills from London in 1942.
The Harris family chose this neighborhood because it reminded them most of their English heritage. They settled on Glenbarr Avenue and lived in that same house for 65 years, hosting Sunday high teas every week for family, friends and neighbors. On the occasion of Victoria (or “Mimi” as her family affectionately called her) turning 100, a bench was dedicated in her honor and her devotion to the neighborhood of Cheviot Hills.
If you are interested in dedicating a bench at Rancho Park for one of your loved ones, call (310) 837-5186 for more information.
