Sad news on an early Sunday Morning. The West Hollywood Lions Club Log Cabin, a home to 12-step meetings for thousands upon thousands of recovering alcoholics and addicts, is scheduled to be demolished. The City of Beverly Hills gave notice to the Lions Club to demolish the Log Cabin, located at 621 N Robertson Blvd, and vacate the land by March 31, 2020.
Council member John Duran released the following statement:
“WEHOANS. ABOUT THE LOG CABIN….
Phone is ringing off the hook. The City of Beverly Hills has given notice to the Lion’s Club to demolish the Log Cabin on Robertson Blvd and vacate the land by March 31, 2020.
I am discussing with Weho City Manager and City Attorney. The Log Cabin may have potential historic significance. As such, it cannot be demolished without public input and due process.
I spoke to the President of the Lion’s Club yesterday and notified him that the building has the potential of being nominated as a historic property. Therefore, I am asking my city attorney to issue a cease and desist order against both the Lion’s Club and the City of Beverly Hills from attempting to demolish a potential historic structure without due process of law.
The Log Cabin is very important to me. Some see it as a crappy run down rustic building that needs to be torn down.
I see it as a place where MIRACLES have happened for decades. Recovery on Robertson is a critical issue for the West Hollywood. community. I will keep you updated here on Facebook and Twitter. But in the meantime, you can express your comments with the City of Beverly Hills by emailing their city council at
I will work with my colleagues on the West Hollywood City Council to do what I can to preserve this treasured place.”
