It became a film studio and the home of Hal Roach comedies in 1914. Then Roach and Dan Linthicum founded the Rolin Film Co. and Harold Lloyd started his climb to fame in the "Lonesome Luke" comedies. Samuel and Joseph Carter Newsom were the architects. The house was finished in 1887 at a cost of $80,000. It was demolished in 1929.
