In the Verdugo Mountains region of Los Angeles County lies Glendale City, with a population estimated slightly over 200,000 in 2019. It is famous for many things, including the magnificent Spanish architecture and the extensive collection of Craftsman homes built at the beginning of the 20th century up to around 1925.

The Craftsman approach was an alternative to the prior Victorian homes, which featured over every section's top details. The Victorian homes mostly utilized mass-produced materials while the Craftsman buildings relied on hand-worked goods. The proponents of the approach felt that relying heavily on mass production devalued human labor. Most of the Craftsman homes in Glendale were demolished after World War II to pave the way for apartment complexes. The Glendale Historical Society helps with the preservation of the remaining Craftsman homes, including organizing tours to some of the outstanding ones such as:

  • The 1902 Harris House
  • Dora Verdugo House constructed in 1911
  • The 1908 Arts and Crafts Tatum House
  • Worley House built in 1914

Natural disasters, such as the Great Flooding at the end of 1933 and early 1934, sending water and mud over the steep slopes of San Gabriels, damaged several properties.
