Owners of a historic home in Burbank with old Glendale ties have taken steps to make sure it remains a showcase for years to come.
Known as the Rock House, the home was built in 1922 at 902 E. Olive Ave. in Burbank, and recently became the first residence in the city to be designated as a landmark.
The original owner, Orlando C. Lane, whose family moved to Burbank in 1889 and later to Glendale, attended schools in both cities, according to the "Burbank Community Book."
Lane became a prominent businessman who acquired a dealership called the Ford Agency in 1912. He sold the company and retired in 1923.
The home was sold to the second owners in 1968, and in 2004 Gregory Rehner and Kirk Solomon bought it. The kitchen and two bathrooms were renovated, and the landscape was replanted with drought-tolerant California natives.
