Gravestone of Altadena abolitionist Owen Brown to be Reinstalled Soon


After years of preservation efforts by the Altadena community, a gravestone honoring abolitionist and former Altadena resident Owen Brown will soon be reinstalled at his gravesite in the foothills north of town.

“We’re really glad it’s finally happening,” said Michele Zack, a local historian and chair of the Owen Brown Gravesite Restoration Committee, which was created by the L.A. County Board of Supervisors.
