Rossmoyne is one of Glendale's most interesting historic neighborhoods, rich with some of our finest residential architecture. The historic district - Glendale's largest - consists of 503 homes set along gently curving streets and features an outstanding variety of Period Revival homes, including excellent examples of the Spanish Colonial Revival, Tudor Revival, and French-inspired designs. The area was developed by the Haddock-Nibley Company beginning in 1923 and was largely built out by 1950. Nibley Park, donated to the city by the developer, is included in the district. The Royal Boulevard Historic District includes a portion of the second phase of the Rossmoyne development.
