Glendale’s mayor is slated to talk about the changing face of Montrose, from its origins as a dusty main street to its evolution into the tree-lined shopping district residents know today.
Other discussion topics include stories of the region’s more eccentric businesses and a historical perspective on the origins of how Honolulu Avenue got its name and where City Hall Coffee Shop got its name.
The event is free.
