Cultural Landmarks ;''Filipino Christian Church, Iglesia ni Cristo (INC) and St. Columban Filipino Catholic Church'' On May 5, 1998, the Los Angeles City Council designated the Filipino Christian Church as Los Angeles Historic-Cultural Monument No. 651. The Filipino (Disciples) Christian Church is the only Historic Cultural Monument designated by the City of Los Angeles with Filipino origins, distinguished by its German Gothic Revival and Craftsman architecture. The Disciples of Christ State Board adopted the work with the Filipinos as its mission and called on Rev. and Mrs. Frank Stipp, former missionaries to the Ilocos provinces, to oversee the work. Through them and the Disciples of Christ State Board, a center was later started when the Disciples secured for the Filipino Christian Fellowship four bungalows complete with apartment facilities and a worship place located at First and Bunker Hill, where the Music Center and Disney Concert Hall stand today. It is believed that these quarters sparked the start of what is known now as Historic Filipino Town. Having been the earliest Christian church established to cater to Filipino Americans, many key organizations in the area germinated from this church, including SIPA and the Filipino American Library. Although not yet designated as Historic-Cultural landmarks, Historic Filipinotown also has the oldest site for Iglesia ni Cristo (INC) (Iglesia ni Cristo)Church in mainland America and the earliest Filipino Catholic Church built in the country. Despite its gothic elements, the INC Church in the district is a $7.6 million USD structure which is also one of the few in the area that reflects genuine Philippine architecture. thumbnail right The $7.6 Million INC Church is one of the few structues that displays authentic Philippine architecture (File:Filipinotown INC.jpg) thumbnail right St. Columban Filipino Catholic Church, the nation's oldest 'Filipino' Catholic Church (File:St. Columban Filipino Church.jpg) Purchased in part by funds donated by First Lady Aurora Quezon as a gift to the Filipinos in Los Angeles: the St. Columban Filipino Church on Beverly Blvd and Loma St. also has authentic church bells from Antipolo City, Philippines. The church sits on one of the five hills that circled the old Los Angeles; this hill is called Crown Hill. In the 1890s Crown Hill was the epicenter of a massive oil boom when Edward L. Doheny and Charles A. Canfield bought a lot at Colton Street and Glendale Boulevard; on November 1892 they struck oil and the boom was on. ;''Gintong Kasaysayan, Gintong Pamana mural'' Prior to the area being designated as Historic Filipinotown, on June 24, 1995, Ethnic enclaves like Chinatown (Chinatown, Los Angeles), Historic Filipinotown (Historic Filipinotown, Los Angeles), Koreatown (Koreatown, Los Angeles), Little Armenia (Little Armenia, Los Angeles), Little Ethiopia (Little Ethiopia, Los Angeles), Tehrangeles, Little Tokyo (Little Tokyo, Los Angeles), and Thai Town (Thai Town, Los Angeles) provide examples of the polyglot (Multilingualism) character of Los Angeles.
