Alhambra home where Norman Rockwell wed is for sale
The house in Alhambra where iconic artist Norman Rockwell and his second wife, Mary Barstow, were wed is on the market at $748,000.
The Craftsman-style house, built in 1910, was the home of her parents. The couple had a garden wedding on the third-of-an-acre site and soon moved to the East Coast, but returned for visits.
A 1941 news account from the L.A. Times reported that Rockwell was wintering in Alhambra to rest and to paint.
Features of the two-story house include a front porch, a den, an office, a library/study, a glass-enclosed porch, six bedrooms and two bathrooms in 2,746 square feet of living space. There is a detached two-car garage.
The prolific painter and illustrator, who died in 1978 at 84, captured American life in cover illustrations for the Saturday Evening Post for 47 years.
Jacqueline Tager of Sotheby’s International Realty is the listing agent.
