Description
Title supplied by cataloger.
The Harold Lloyd Estate, also known as Greenacres, was designed by Sumner Spaulding and built in the late-1920s. The property originally included a 44-room mansion, which was Lloyd's residence until his death in 1971, a golf course, and outbuildings. The property was later subdivided into multiple lots, but the mansion, remaining intact, was added to the National Register of Historic Places in 1984. In addition, the home is also a California Historical Landmark and a Los Angeles Historic-Cultural Monument.
Photograph caption dated April 20, 1971 reads, "Arriving for first tour of Harold Lloyd home in 1924 Rolls-Royce formerly owned by the comedian are, left, Joe Beranek, recorder, and Walker S. Kisselburgh, potentate of Al Malaikah Temple, joined by Woody Wise, estate director, and Suzanne Lloyd Guasti, granddaughter of the late comedian who was once potentate of the shrine temple."
