Eagle Rock

Eagle Rock, a neighborhood of architectural and historic homes, is bordered by Glendale on the north and west, Highland Park to the southeast, Glassell Park to the southwest, and Pasadena and South Pasadena on the east. At certain times of the day on the northern edge of Eagle Rock, an enormous boulder projects a bird-shaped shadow resembling an eagle in flight, giving the city its name. Since the 1920s, artists, writers and filmmakers have moved to the architectural and historic homes of Eagle Rock, with Craftsman, Georgian, Art Deco and Mission Revival styles.
