It is a California Historical Landmark Adobe Home built in 1828 by Teodoro Verdugo, the grandson of Jose Maria Verdugo. Mr. Verdugo, a Spanish Soldier, received the original property grant back in 1784. The grant stipulated that the land be used for farming and to raise livestock, and to live peacefully with the American Indians. It is a step back in time and reflects what life was like back in the 1860's. It's completely furnished with authentic artifacts from that period.

We had a very large group go through the doctor's house this past weekend as a birthday party for my dad. He is a doctor, so what could be more appropriate! Peter led the group and it was terrific. Kids and adults all learn from the experience and the house is just like walking back to the past. It was my second time here and I can't help buy highly recommend it! Great day in the park as well, Brand Park is lovely and it was the perfect day with a picnic and a tour of the past!

Paying a tribute to Michael Jackson was the reason why I first began coming to this cemetery. It has been many visits and eventually I realized that Forest Lawn Memorial Glendale is even more than a dear resting place - it's somewhat profoundly moving, enriching experience just to be here for a couple of hours, in these beautiful surroundings. I am a visitor from Northern CA. And it was pleasant to find out that there are some local Michael's fans that come here regularly.
