Hollywood Heritage, Inc. has owned and operated the Lasky DeMille barn since 1982. The building was originally constructed as a horse barn in 1904 by Jacob Stern, whose estate was on Vine Street, just south of Prospect Ave. (later Hollywood Blvd.). Called "Casa Las Palmas" it had been built earlier by Col. Robert Northam. In early 1912, Louis Loss Burns (later founder of Western Costume) and director Harry Revier rented it from Mr. Stern, whose only condition was that half the barn would have to be reserved for his horses and automobiles. The newly rechristened Burns & Revier Studio and Film Laboratory. When Cecil B. DeMille, Director-General of the Jesse L. Lasky Company came West to find a location to shoot his planned film, "The Squaw man," he was told of the barn studio and subsequently rented it. The success of this neophyte film company led to a merger with Adolph Zukor's Famous Players Film Company and the eventual establishment of Paramount Pictures. The barn was moved to the new Paramount lot in 1927 and after 52 years as the studio gym on the Melrose Avenue studio, the barn became a museum in 1985.
