SAH/SCC is pleased to announce A Block in Glendale, a one-day tour showcasing the diversity and originality of Glendale's residential architecture. By focusing on a very small but extremely high-quality area, tour participants will understand the richness of Glendale's architecture from the beginning to end of the twentieth century. Glendale, like many of Los Angeles' neighborhoods, is a microcosm of Southern California's rich architectural heritage.
A Block in Glendale-a drive-yourself event-will be held Saturday, May 19th, 10AM-2PM. Tickets are $45 for SAH/SCC members and $55 for non-members, and include snacks and refreshments at the conclusion of the tour in lieu of a box lunch.
The event will commence at Ard Eevin, an impressive Colonial/West Indies Plantation home built in 1903, which has recently been inducted into the National Register of Historic Places. At this location, former City of Glendale Historic Planner Juliet Arroyo will give a brief overview of the history of the neighborhood before the start of the tour.
Participants will visit the Baird House by Paul Revere Williams. Built in 1926, this exceptional early example of Williams' work has never before been open to the public. It features an almost completely intact exterior and interior, with original Mediterranean garden and water features as well as furniture and artwork original to the house.
The tour also features a remarkable Spanish Colonial Revival residence; a 1950s modernist home by Alfred T. Wilkes; a glass house built in 1973 by Vahran Kevork Jebejian; and a 1960 modernist residence that has recently been remodeled and updated by the design firm Built.
