Spanish architecture has left an enduring impression in Los Angeles, and Glendale in particular, where Spanish Colonial Revival — and Mediterranean Revival — flourished during the late 1920s and early 1930s.
The Glendale Historical Society’s Spanish Splendor home tour on Sept. 25 will showcase five period revival homes: the 1928 Jacob D. Funk House designed by architect Earl C. Rahn; the Bowles House, a 1929 Spanish Colonial Revival hillside home with a sunken, barrel-vaulted living room; the Burns House, a 1928 Mediterranean Revival home built by Guy Worth Calkins; the Mahoney House, a classic 1932 Spanish Colonial Revival home; and the Wiegert House, a modest 1932 Spanish Colonial Revival home with magnesite floors, hand-stenciled wood beams and tile fireplace.The 1928 Jacob D.
