About Us

Rachel Kafka and Nate Hennagin, a married couple living and working in Los Angeles, are on the hunt to find, and get lost in, "Lost Angeles."

This blog is meant to help preserve LA's storied past - the pieces of its history that are long gone, and those that remain today. Rachel & Nate hope to inspire urban exploration for tourists and locals alike, share their love of history and LA culture, and piece together a guide inspired by LA's days gone by. 

Rachel has a BA in American Studies and a MA in Humanities with extensive experience in historical research. A total nerd for all things 20th century American history, Rachel especially loves art deco and mid-century architecture, vintage fashion, the Golden Age of Hollywood, and exploring abandoned and historic places. Follow Rachel on social media here.

Nate is an entertainment attorney and native Californian. With a penchant for mid-century architecture and design, Nate has found endless inspiration in the nooks and crannies of this city. Nate especially loves neon signs, old diners, Tiki bars, and LA's western heritage.
