Regarding Zane Grey Estate. Architects Myron Hunt and Elmer Grey designed the Mediterranean Revival style mansion for Chicago business machine manufacturer Arthur Woodward in 1907. The house was the first fireproof home in Altadena, built entirely of reinforced concrete as prescribed by Woodward's wife Edith, who was a survivor of the Iroquois Theater Fire in Chicago, which killed over 600 people in 1903.

Zane Grey bought the Woodward home in 1920 and built an addition on the roof for a studio, library and museum. In 1928, an east wing was added to the house. After the Greys' death, their sons owned the property, and the house sold in 1970. Today, the second floor has three apartments and the first floor is available daily through Airbnb.
