CRAFTSMANS OF CASA VERDUGO WALKING TOUR
JUNE 4, 2017 I 10 AM I SOLD OUT
In late 1904, the Pacific Electric Railway extended its Glendale line to the northern terminus of Brand Boulevard. And in January 1905, the Casa Verdugo restaurant opened nearby. As a result of these two events, a neighborhood quickly arose in that area. Befitting the architectural norms of the era, many Craftsman homes were built in the community that became known as "Casa Verdugo." A number of intact examples of the Craftsmans of Casa Verdugo remain today.
The Craftsmans of Casa Verdugo Walking Tour, which will be led by TGHS Executive Director and Casa Verdugo resident Sean Bersell, will feature approximately two dozen Craftsman houses, including two that are on the Glendale Register of Historic Resources and two others that were designed by noted Glendale architect Alfred F. Priest.
