The skull of the Lincoln Heights Whale is included in an exhibit, “LA Underwater: The Prehistoric Sea Beneath Us.”

The skull of the Lincoln Heights Whale is included in an exhibit, “LA Underwater: The Prehistoric Sea Beneath Us.”
Lincoln Heights — You may have noticed that Lincoln Heights is several miles from the ocean. But, millions of years ago, Lincoln Heights and the rest of L.A. were submerged deep under the sea.
That explains why in 1932 a man digging an irrigation ditch in the Flat Top/Happy Valley area found a fully intact prehistoric skull of a whale. The 32-foot-long mammal swam, ate and sang in the oceans 12 million years ago. 
The six-foot long fossil is now displayed at the Natural History Museum exhibition, “LA Underwater: The Prehistoric Sea Beneath Us.
The Natural History Museum is offering free admission to Lincoln Heights residents on Saturday, Oct. 1, to visit their long-lost neighbor.  Go here to reserve your free ticket.
