This month, the Culver City Historical Society program takes guests on a trip from Latvia to Culver City, where they wille explore the family history of Stu Freeman, local businessman and past
president of the Culver City Historical Society.
Stu’s grandparents, Molly and Louis Freeman, opened Freeman’s Market in
downtown Culver City in the 1920s. They serviced many country clubs,
restaurants, the MGM Studios, and even Leo the Lion ate their products!
Later, they opened Freeman’s Furniture in the Hull Building, still owned
by the family and now home to Akasha Restaurant.
The Freeman Family has been an integral part of Culver City. Their history
will be presented through a PowerPoint presentation that will show the
many uses of the historic Hull Building over the years.
“While celebrating our Centennial, I congratulate the city that my family
has been a part of for 90 of its 100 years,” Stu says.
Prior to the program, Mr. and Mrs. Dennis Shapiro and Rabbi Zachary
Shapiro of Temple Akiba will officially gift the Historical Society an
original letter by Harry Culver to Hal Roach Studio about (what else?)
