The Cobb Family Estate….

Is it really haunted?

Image result for cobb estate, altadena, ca

The Cobbs, interesting ''pioneers'' in the Altadena area, were generous donors to the community and built a beautiful and innovative home in 1918.  (It included air conditioning!)  The Cobb estate property has had several incarnations and owners (including the famous Marx brothers). 

It was the subject of real contention in the late '60s and early '70s and was finally saved from developers by a valiant effort on the part of John Muir High School students!

Our speaker for this program is Altadena Historical Society volunteer Pam Wright.  Pam has lived in the Altadena area since 1953.  Her professional life involved 27 years as a Planner and Engineering Manager at Pacific Bell.  Retiring in 1991, she began volunteering.  With a lifelong interest in history, she joined Altadena Historical Society in 2015 and serves on the Archives and Executive committees.  Altadena Historical Society was founded in 1935 and serves as a local archive, public research center and museum.
