The Church of the Angels is one of the most historic churches in Southern California. It was erected by the wife of Alexander Robert Campbell-Johnson, a descendant of a pre-Revolutionary War leader. Campbell-Johnson and his wife Frances traveled to California in search of land to purchase, which they found through then-mayor of Los Angeles Prudent Beaudry. The Episcopalian church, which encompasses an area that was once part of the Rancho San Rafael property, was built by Frances to honor her husband after he became ill and died. Visitors are welcome at Sunday services.
