Regarding Glendora City Hall. The first municipal building in Glendora was completed in 1913 and served as city hall, fire station, and police department. The building became a meeting place for local civic groups when the new city hall opened in 1922. The Glendora Historical Society established a museum here in 1952. An addition was completed in 1989, with expanded display areas. The museum is open from 11-2 on most Saturdays.
