John Anson Ford Residence, Los Angeles Historic Cultural Monument #1027
Built: 1932 Declared: 02/27/2013
This Los Feliz property, built in 1932 by an unknown architect, is a two-story single family residence in the Spanish Colonial Revival style. The U-shaped home has multi-bay side-gabled roofs covered in red Spanish clay tile and its facades are composed of exposed brick and stucco. In 1946, Los Angeles County Supervisor John Anson Ford purchased the home from its original owner and resided there until his death at age 100. A civic reformer, Ford investigated corruption in Los Angeles hospitals and was influential in the establishment of the Los Angeles County Arts Commission and the L.A. County Museum of Art.
