Exterior view of a Craftsman style residence located on an unidentified street in Eagle Rock. A long striped awning the length of the porch offers the homeowners plenty of shade. Young palm saplings have been planted on either side of the lawn and several fully matured trees also offer plenty of shade. 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.
