Gentrification over the past decade has made Eagle Rock real estate a hot commodity. Young urban professionals, hipsters and artists have been drawn to its beautiful neighborhoods and character homes.
Eagle Rock is an artistic, moderately affluent neighborhood in the hills of northeastern Los Angeles, between Glendale and Pasadena. Once an independent city, Eagle Rock was annexed by the City of Los Angeles in 1923. Because it is home to Occidental College, Eagle Rock feels like a small college town that has the benefits of being part of a big city. Its convenient location provides easy access to other parts of the city.
Since the 1920s, Eagle Rock has been home to writers, artists and filmmakers. Even today, a large number of creative industry workers call Eagle Rock home. The community is very supportive of small business, and has an interesting mix of restaurants, art galleries and shops. Residents are known for being involved in the community through various organizations, including The Eagle Rock Association, Women's Twentieth Century Club, the Eagle Rock Historical Society, Collaboration for Eagle Rock Beautiful, and the Eagle Rock Neighborhood Council.
Eagle Rock's eclectic architecture includes many historic and architecturally significant homes. Occidental College was designed by Myron Hunt in the early 1900s. The Center for the Arts, formerly a Carnegie library, is noted for its mission revival style. The Eagle Rock Recreation Center was designed by architect Richard Neutra in 1953. Many of the communities homes were built in the 1920s, and so there is a large number of Craftsman and Spanish style cottages in the area. There was another building surge post-World War II, which you can see in some neighborhoods (for example, the block of Mount Helena north of Hill Drive).
