Landmark Designation of the Adams Square Mini-park Gas Station
The City of Glendale Community Services & Parks Dept., in partnership with the Adams Hill Neighborhood Association (AHNA), The Glendale Historical Society (TGHS), and the City of Glendale Historic Preservation Commission (HPC), is celebrating the official landmarking of the 1936 Richfield Gas Station in the Adams Square mini-park. On Dec. 8, 2015, the Glendale City Council approved official listing of the gas station on the Glendale Register of Historic Resources.

The celebration takes place Saturday, July 9 from 5:30 p.m. to 8 p.m. and is free and open to the public. It is planned around the installation of the official plaque marking the structure as a city landmark. It will include two food trucks with items available for purchase.

The event is casual and attendees are welcome to dress in period outfits.

The 2015 landmark nomination, made by the City of Glendale’s Historic Preservation Commission, was part of an initiative to facilitate formal designation of several significant City-owned properties. The Adams Square mini-park project was completed in 2007 by the City of Glendale in an effort to create a green space in the center of the local business district for the densely populated Adams Hill neighborhood, and to incorporate the historic 1936 Streamline Moderne Gas Station.
