Regarding Uplifters Clubhouse. The Uplifters were a social club in Rustic Canyon, an offshoot of the Los Angeles Athletic Club. They built cabins nearby as second homes for weekend retreats. Following the Depression, the club began to sell off properties in the area, and disbanded in 1947. The clubhouse and recreational facilities were donated to the city in 1953, which became today’s Rustic Canyon Recreation Center city park. The nearby Forestry Station is Los Angeles Historic-Cultural Monument No. 935, designated in 2008, and California Historical Landmark No. 840, designated in 1971.
