On February 22, 1913, the Holmes-Walton real estate agency hosted a huge barbecue to promote its new community of Montrose. It had purchased 250 acres of mostly sagebrush in the foothills north of Glendale and held a contest to name the development. The business district grew quickly along Honolulu Avenue, but began to decline in the 1950s. It was reinvigorated by the creation of a tree-lined shopping park in the late 1960s and today is thriving, with unique restaurants and one-of-a-kind retail stores. This book has the story behind many of the mom-and-pop businesses of Montrose. For anyone who shops in Montrose, it will fascinate and charm.
