Community members celebrated one of Glendale's remaining Victorian houses in a unique fashion on Sunday afternoon.
The Doctor's House, now in Brand Park, was moved from East Wilson Avenue in the middle of the night in September 1980 after being threatened with demolition the previous year. The move was the coming-out party for the Glendale Historical Society, and in celebration of the event, about a dozen people walked the five-mile path Sunday afternoon with a small wooden house in a red wagon.
The house, aptly named because of its history of housing prominent early Glendale physicians, was also owned by silent-screen icon Nell Shipman for a period of time. For the anniversary, the society installed new exhibits to memorialize the doctors and recreate Shipman's bedroom on the second floor of the house.
"It was a labor of love," said Elaine Wilkerson, secretary of the Glendale Historical Society. "For the 30th anniversary, we needed to breathe fresh life into the house."
