Trailer Park Monument? Southern California Preserves Auto Culture History
Only in L.A. some would say, but to us, they’re preaching to the choir. In a effort to preserve America’s auto culture, a trailer park in Southern California, that has served Tin Can Tourists for over 80 yeas, was granted Historic Monument status.
The Monterey Trailer Park pre-dates Hollywood’s Walk of Fame, the invention of parking meters, and even Disneyland. The shady grounds, its residents, and owner John Agnew, of Funky Junk Farms, have now received national attention for their little slice of historical Trailer paradise.
