History and Historic Sites of the Valley * Then and Now Photos * Lost Crescenta * Rockhaven * Membership
From 1923 to 2006 Rockhaven Sanitarium, a home for women with mental illnesses, treated its patients with dignity and respect. It was unique for its time in that it was run by women for women. In 2008 the City of Glendale bought the historic facility for future use as a library and community center.
Joanna Linkhorst, head of the Friends of Rockhaven, will tell us of its proud history and its Hollywood connections, its current condition, and what the future holds for it. Our special guest will be a former nurse, who will share her memories.
Regular meetings are held the third Monday of each month at 7:00 PM at the the Center for Spiritual Living, formerly known as the La Crescenta Church of Religious Science located at the intersection of Dunsmore and Santa Carlotta.
