GHS PRESENTS ‘TREASURES OF ADAMS HILL’
The Glendale Historical Society presents “Treasures of Adams Hill,” a pictorial look at Glendale’s Adams Hill neighborhood – past and present. Formerly part of Tropico, a mythologized city that existed for only seven years, Adams Hill evolved into Glendale’s most bohemian and architecturally distinctive neighborhood with an eclectic mix of homes piled up on the hills, many apartment buildings and a quaint business district that includes a historic gas station repurposed as an art space. To this day, Adams Hill marches to its own tune and has a decidedly urban feel with the charm and friendly vibe of a small town.
Arlene Vidor, a Glendale Arts & Culture commissioner who previously served two terms on the Historic Preservation Commission, will lead the free Zoom presentation on Oct. 8 at 7 p.m. She was president of TGHS from 2002 to 2008, during which time the organization played a key role in the development and adoption of Glendale’s Historic District Ordinance. Vidor is also on the Adams Hill Neighborhood Association Board. She received TGHS’s Lifetime Achievement Award in 2017 and is a member of the Advisory Council.
