Beverly Hills, Thomas Jefferson & Benjamin Franklin

Time is running out to keep LAist funded.
It's the FINAL DAY of our June Member Drive and we are behind on our goal to keep local news strong for the coming months. Your support today keeps our reporters ready to meet the needs of our city. Plus, your gift's impact will be twice as strong because it will be matched dollar for dollar!

This time we learn about some history left out of the books and that Beverly Hills is just any ol' American town with their corn and summer chili.
