Congratulations to Toby Horn who was selected to be a “Woman of Larchmont” by the Larchmont Chronicle.
Horn was recognized for extensive involvement in the community in a wide range of organizations including the Los Angeles Conservancy where she served as board member and The Ebell where she serves on the House, Theatre & Grounds committee and Social Services.
Horn’s love of historic architecture is well known. She and her husband live in a Paul Williams-designed home in Miracle Mile North, noteworthy for its designation as the Howard-Nagin Residence, Los Angeles Historic Cultural Monument #436.
According to the Chronicle, when Toby was a child, her family was friends with the home’s owners, Lou and Ida Nagin. When she visited that home, she was smitten, deciding that she would live there when she grew up. Years later, when she heard that Ida planned to put the house on the market, she and her husband made good on her childhood dream and purchased the architecturally significant home, meticulously restoring it.
Congratulations to Toby on this well deserved recognition!
