Young-Gribling Residence, Los Angeles Historic Cultural Monument #1017
Built: 1885 Declared: 04/25/2012
The 1885 Young-Gribling Residence, a one and a half story single family home in Lincoln Heights, exemplifies the characteristic features of the Queen Anne Style. The exterior is composed of a tall, rusticated stone foundation, horizontal wood siding, wood trim, and decorative vertical and horizontal banding. Gables extend from the main roof, framing the house’s angular tower. The residence was designed by a significant early Los Angeles architect, Robert Brown Young, for his relatives. Two of Young’s other works are already City Historic-Cultural Monuments: the Young Apartments (HCM #317) and the upper two stories of the San Fernando Building (HCM #728). Later owners, the Gribling family, added Arts and Crafts elements to the exterior. The residence eventually changed hands to its current owners in 1993.
