LA’s Historic Fitzgerald House to Reopen as Korean Zen Meditation Center

The mansion underwent extensive and expensive renovations to convert its 6,665-square-foot space into a newly imagined meditation center.

Los Angeles, CA – The Fitzgerald House, a premier Italian Gothic–style mansion in Los Angeles, will reopen next month as an all-purpose Korean Anguk Zen Center. A grand opening event at the Fitzgerald House has been scheduled for October 1, 2022.

Built in 1906, the Fitzgerald House in the West Adams area of Los Angeles has been repurposed over the years from a 20th-century residence to a home for circus performers and a community center. The 6,665-square-foot, twelve-room, two-story brick and stone structure was purchased in 2015 by the Korean Anguk Zen Center with lofty goals to repurpose the Italian Gothic–style mansion into a meditation center.

The mansion underwent extensive and expensive renovations after the 2015 purchase, which were delayed over two years during the height of the COVID-19 pandemic until the highly anticipated construction project was completed earlier this month. The event on October 1, which has been highly anticipated by members of the local community, will feature meditation and delicious Korean temple food for all to enjoy.

“We are excited to host the grand opening of the Korean Anguk Zen Center this October,” remarked Thogu, Director of the Korean Anguk Zen Center. “This project was years in the making. The Center will help people realize the power of meditation for the mind and living a brighter life every day. We look forward to bringing this power to Los Angeles in the historic Fitzgerald House,” they added.

A new chapter of history at the historic Fitzgerald House is just around the corner. To learn more about the Korean Anguk Zen Center and receive additional details about the grand opening event on October 1, please visit
