A couple of years ago, I hosted a tour of Wallace Neff homes in the Pasadena. Wallace Neff built hundreds of homes in SoCal from the 1920's to 1940's, and the ones we saw in Pasadena were for the wealthy so they were mansion-like and beautiful. So come join me as we visit Wallace Neff's birth city and where he got his start in the City of La Mirada.
ABOUT THIS TOUR:
Take a step back in time when you tour the historic Neff Estate at Neff Park in La Mirada. The elegant home, built in 1894 by Frederick Roehrig, is an early, important and little-known example of the Mission Revival style in Los Angeles county. It is also along with the George House, which is the oldest house in La Mirada, all that remains of the former Windemere Ranch development of Andrew McNally. (The McNally home in Altadena, also designed by Roehring just a few years later, is not open to the public.) The celebrated architect of the California Style, Wallace Neff, was born at the Windemere Ranch.
The free tours of the two homes interiors and the grounds will be hosted by members of the La Mirada Historical Preservation Advisory Council. The restored Neff house serves as a snapshot of life on the Windemere Ranch in the early 20th century and a glimpse of Southern California boosterism at that time.
