Description
Exterior side view of a Shingle style bungalow located on an unidentified street in Eagle Rock. This redwood shingle home, known as Rowland House, was one of the earliest homes in Eagle Rock; it was built in 1884 and was owned by the Stevens family. Unfortunately this home was razed in 1965, most likely due to the need for a "larger, more modern" residence. 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. Today, 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 of yesteryear.
