Ziegler Estate, Los Angeles Historic Cultural Monument #416 

Declared February 21, 1989

Built in 1904, the Ziegler Estate is a good example of early 20th Century Shingle-Style Architecture that includes both Victorian and Craftsman elements. Originally built for Charles Hornbeck, the home was soon sold to Roth Ziegler. In the 1950's, it was purchased by Carl Dentzel, the director of the Southwest Museum, who envisioned it as part of a greater Southwest Museum complex due to its location adjacent to the museum's Casa de Adobe. The home was acquired by the City of Los Angeles and is presently used as a child-care facility under the name of La Casita Verde. The home was placed on the National Register of Historic Places on October 3, 2003.
