Architect Francis Brown
California Bungalow Situated Between Laurelhurst and Mount Tabor
When Wilbur Pelton Reid, the son of a prosperous lumber baron, and his new wife Evelyn spent their honeymoon in Southern California, they fell in love with the California-style craftsman bungalows. When they got home, they hired Architect Francis Brown, an eminent bungalow specialist from Los Angeles, to build their dream home. Brown used materials to create this Pasadena-style Craftsman home that would make any lumber baron swoon.
