Before the Gold Line Station (at 3545 Pasadena Ave., L.A.) opened Heritage Square referred to a museum that contained notable Victorian homes which had been moved to this location to save them from demolition.  And the museum is still there--across the river just a few blocks from the station.

The Heritage Square station itself honors other heritages of Los Angeles--particularly from Mexico--with the artwork by Roberto Delgado.

Heritage Square Gold Line art work

What may appear to be convoluted pieces of concrete are Mayan images for the plumed serpent, Quetzalcoatl—a major Mesoamerican deity.

  Heritage Square Gold Line tile Beautiful tiles with  graphic and photographic images of old Los Angeles are imbedded in the platform of the Heritage Square station.

The Lincoln/Cypress Gold Line station (at 370 W. Avenue 26, L.A.) primarily serves a neighborhood of light industrial buildings with some brand new condos. Not much in the way of dining or cultural sites around this station.

Indian woman statue at Lincoln Cypress Gold Line station In the Lincoln/Cypress Gold Line station is a life-size statue of a native American woman by Cheri Gaulke.  This native woman, according to a nearby sign, carried water to local homes when water for El Pueblo de Los Angeles came from an open ditch, called the zanja madre.
