L.A. has a new historic-cultural monument: the former site of the Los Angeles Korean United Methodist Church. The L.A. City Council voted on the designation earlier this week.

The building, which is located near USC and now serves as apartments for students, was a house of worship from 1945 to 1959.

UCLA professor David K. Yoo says Methodist churches were community hubs for Koreans who came to the United States during the early 20th Century.
