Smith Estate (Los Angeles, California)

Smith Estate (Los Angeles, California)

The Smith Estate, also known as El Mio (Spanish: "mine" or "my place"), is a historic Victorian house perched on a hilltop in the Highland Park section of Los Angeles, California. The street, El Mio, is named after the house, which is how the Smith family referred to it during their residence there. Built in 1887, the house was designed in the Queen Anne style by an unknown architect. It has been the residence of a judge who wrote books on occultism, the head of the Los Angeles Railway, and a deputy mayor, and the shooting location for the cult films "Spider Baby" and "Silent Scream". It has also been declared a Los Angeles Historic-Cultural Monument and listed on the National Register of Historic Places.
