This Month’s Program

Some years ago, at the Glendale Public Library, Fred Hoeptner discovered and copied Holmes-Walton’s 1913 publicity brochure for the community of Montrose.  A photograph of an idyllic scene captioned, “Looking Northeast from East Line of Montrose”, particularly intrigued him. It seemed to depict a primitive road leading to a gap in the hills, which he later found locals had once called “Rocky Pass.” Could it be Verdugo Road?  If so, where was it taken?  Our speaker, Fred Hoeptner, is a Los Angels native and has degrees in Environmental and Civil Engineering.  He and his wife moved to the Crescenta Valley in 1968 and joined the Historical Society of Crescenta Valley on its founding. They are also active members of the Friends of the La Crescenta Library.   Please join us for this interesting program.
