Below is some general information about La Crescenta:
La Crescenta-Montrose is a census-designated place (CDP) and an unincorporated area in Los Angeles County, California, encompassing those parts of the Crescenta Valley not in the cities of Glendale or La Cañada Flintridge. However, both the unincorporated area and the portion of incorporated Glendale north of Montrose are collectively called La Crescenta. It is bordered on the north by the Angeles National Forest, on the east by La Cañada Flintridge, on the south by Glendale, and the northwest by Tujunga. The Foothill Freeway runs through the southern portion of the area. The population was 19,653 at the 2010 census, up from 18,532 in the 2000 census.
In November 1933, wildfires raged through the nearby San Gabriel mountains above the communities of La Crescenta, La Cañada and Montrose. During the last week of December of that year, a series of winter storm pounded the mountainside with 12 inches of rain. On New Year’s Eve, more heavy rains led to sporadic flooding. Around midnight, hillsides in at least three mountain locations collapsed sending millions of tons of mud and debris into the Crescenta Valley neighborhoods below. More than 400 homes were destroyed in La Cañada, La Crescenta, Montrose and Tujunga. Scores of people were killed, and hundreds were left homeless. Entire families were wiped out.
The mudslides that began in the mountains above La Cañada and La Crescenta carved a path of destruction all the way to the Verdugo Wash and beyond. Some Montrose residents sought shelter from flooding at American Legion Post 288, which was destroyed, killing 12. Parts of Foothill Boulevard were buried under 12 feet (4m) of mud, boulders and debris. The mud was deep enough to bury cars completely on Montrose Avenue. Miles of Honolulu Boulevard were inundated by several feet of sand and silt. Two notable victims of the flood were silent-era identical-twin child actors Winston and Weston Doty, who died at the age of 20. Following the disaster, the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers and the County of Los Angeles built a flood control system of catch basins and concrete storm drains, designed to prevent a repeat of the 1934 disaster. The flood was commemorated in Woody Guthrie’s song “Los Angeles New Year’s Flood”. To honor the victims of that New Year’s calamity and to mark its 75th anniversary a small monument was dedicated January 1, 2004, at Rosemont and Fairway Avenues, in Montrose, near where the American Legion Hall had stood.
In the spring of 2012, a large black bear managed to wander regularly from the Angeles National Forest into the La Crescenta-Montrose-Glendale residential area, rummaging through trash cans and showing a preference for Costco meatballs and tuna. The bear was subdued in La Crescenta and returned to the forest. A Twitter account from an individual posting as “GlenBearian” appeared with updates from the bear’s perspective. The historic 1946 La Crescenta Motel, with its classic postwar L-shaped layout on Foothill Blvd., has been used as a location for numerous feature films and television shows, such as “Glee,” “Criminal Minds” and “True Blood.” Rockhaven Sanitarium on Honolulu Avenue, built entirely of rock, opened in 1923. It became known as the “Screen Actors’ Sanitarium,” housing such patients as Billie Burke and Gladys Baker, mother of Marilyn Monroe. Closed in 2006, the property is slated for refurbishment and re-opening as a library. Another, more notorious sanitarium existed in La Crescenta from the 1920s to the early 1960s. A few yards west of the La Crescenta Motel, on the corner of Foothill Boulevard and Rosemont Avenue, is the site of the Kimball Sanitarium, which was housed in a large, foreboding, converted Victorian mansion built in the 1880s. Bela Lugosi attempted to overcome his morphine addiction at the Kimball, as represented in the Tim Burton film “Ed Wood.” Actress Frances Farmer, misdiagnosed as a “paranoid schizophrenic,” received insulin shock therapy at Kimball. Plans to expand the sanitarium were rejected by local residents in the early 1960s and the sanitarium was finally torn down. Construction workers readying the building for demolition found padded cells, straight-jackets and manacles attached to the walls. The site became sprawling shopping plaza, and a Ralphs supermarket currently occupies the spot where the disreputable sanitarium once stood. During an as-yet undiagnosed episode of manic depression in 1996, actress Margot Kidder attempted to walk 12 miles from downtown Los Angeles to the La Crescenta home of her friend, writer Rosie Shuster. Kidder was discovered in Glendale and hospitalized.
The Town Council has nine elected members, with three alternate members, serving as an advisory body for the unincorporated areas of La Crescenta and Montrose. The council’s purpose is to listen to and communicate “residentsÕ needs, ideas and concerns to the appropriate public agencies, City, County and State, including the Supervisor of the Fifth District, Michael Antonovich, its official representative on the Los Angeles County Board of Supervisor.” The Los Angeles County Department of Health Services operates the Glendale Health Center in Glendale, serving La Crescenta and Montrose. Verdugo Hills Hospital is a 158-bed nonprofit primary-care facility. It features emergency services, inpatient and outpatient diagnostic and treatment facilities, a family birthing center, and bariatric and orthopedic surgical services.
