History and Historic Sites of the Valley * Then and Now Photos * Lost Crescenta * Rockhaven * Membership
Ever wonder what lies behind the gates of Rockhaven Sanitarium? Join us for a guided photo tour of what this local historical gem looks like on the inside. First up will be a short film by local resident Ana Tabuena, featuring interviews with past employees. Then photographer Bob McFall will show us a selection of photos he has taken inside Rockhaven in the last year.
Rockhaven Sanitarium was established in 1923, when sanitariums for the treatment of lung deseases and mental illness were a major local industry. Rockhaven was unique in that it was a "women only" facility, and had several Hollywood stars as patients. It was abandoned several years ago, but was recently bought by the Glendale for future use as a library and community center.
