According to Glendale’s Historical Society, Adams Hill, once part of the town known as Tropico, is a “treasure trove of beautiful, modest-sized, architecturally preserved homes, especially of the Mediterranean, Spanish Colonial, and Tudor Revival Styles. There is also a generous smattering of innovative post war modernist houses sprinkled throughout the neighborhood, as many innovative architects took to Adams Hill in the ’40s and ’50s to build at the higher altitudes.” The neighborhood has also been home to famed photographer Edward Weston, and the nation’s first Baskin-Robbins ice cream parlor.
