Scoones House, a 1928 Spanish Colonial Revival home with an imposing central tower and elaborate Churrigueresque style entrance.(Matthew Letcher)
McCall’s House, built as a model home by Rossmoyne Village, Inc. under the supervision of local architect Merrill W. Baird. In keeping with its French Revival style, the house resembles a small country manor house with a steeply pitched hipped roof and decorative segmentally arched “eyebrow” dormers that interrupt the roof line at the exaggerated cornice. The house is listed on the Glendale Register of Historic Resources.(Matthew Letcher)
The living room of the Daves-Cannon House, a striking 1936 Colonial Revival home designed by prominent Glendale architect Merrill W. Baird. The house, which is listed on the Glendale Register of Historic Resources as an outstanding and unusual example of the style; was once owned by David Cannon, co-founder and president of radio station KIEV-AM, one of the only family-owned-and-operated radio stations in Southern California.(Matthew Letcher)
