Over the years, numerous surveys have been conducted of Glendale's wonderful collection of historic sites and buildings. Some of these were sponsored by the city and others were done by local historical societies or private property owners. Knowing whether a building has been determined as "historic" can be very useful for property owners, developers, and the general public before entering into purchases or projects that might affect significant historic places. Unfortunately, at this time only a small percentage of the properties in Glendale have been surveyed. The following survey information is provided for your use, but PLEASE NOTE that the fact that a site is not included in a survey does not mean that it is not of potential historic importance. The Community Development Department reviews work proposals on a case-by-case basis and may determine that a property is potentially historic under city and state law, which may require further review under state environmental laws.
