hhh2.jpgThe [Hale] house has been called ‘picturesque eclectic,’ meaning its designer took a scroll from here and a fleur-de-lis from there and put everything together with romantic abandon. … Because of its eclectic nature, the Hale house is said to embody, in one package, many architectural inventions of the late 19th century, that buoyant and capricious era.
~ Jack Smith, from his June 1970 L.A. Times column “‘May Day’ for an Old House,” published shortly before the house was moved to Heritage Square.
