Exterior view of a Craftsman shingle style residence with an address of "5147" located on an unidentified street in Eagle Rock. Small lemon trees are on either side of the lawn with several of the fruits dangling from the branches and on the ground. Eagle Rock is a neighborhood in northeastern Los Angeles that derives its name from a massive boulder at the district's northern edge, which contains an indentation that casts a vaguely bird-shaped shadow on the rock at certain times of day. In the 1880s Eagle Rock existed as a farming community with grand Victorian farmhouses and many exquisite Craftsman homes in charming neighborhoods. It became an independent city in 1906 and was incorporated in 1911; it also became home to Occidental College, designed by famed architect Myron Hunt, in 1914. Several streets in Eagle Rock are lined with historic and architecturally significant homes done in the Colonial revival, English Tudor, Craftsman, Georgian, Streamline Moderne, Art Deco and Spanish/Mission style.
