    Significance Statement
    House submitted to MyHistoricLA for its association with Einar Peterson, a Danish muralist who painted approximately 20 murals in the Los Angeles area from 1915 to 1940. Peterson's house at 4350 Beverly Blvd, where he resided from 1921 until the late 1970s, is a designated Los Angeles HCM (#552). Research revealed that Peterson did not reside at 12259 W. Hesby St during the most productive period of his professional career. Peterson's daughter, Norma Porter, was the first owner of the house at 12259 W. Hesby St.
