Glendale borders La Cañada Flintridge, our base, on the Southwest border. This city is full of diversity in business, scenes, and people. With tons of things to do and to see, Glendale is an amazing city.
Like the surrounding areas, this land was populated by the Tongva people until the land was given to José María Verdugo as a part of the land grant, Rancho San Rafael. José’s grandson, Teodoro Verdugo constructed the Verdugo Adobe, which marks the oldest house in Glendale.
After people from the East settled in the land, they came together to come up with a name. Glendale was chosen to be the title of the city. Population grew and became more diverse. From 1920-1930, the population nearly quintupled. Many people of Armenian descent settled in Glendale, making the city one of the largest Armenian cultural hubs in the United States.
