Upton Sinclair House


Looks like the house has sold, the next chapter starts now.

The Upton Sinclair house was home to the author of "The Jungle" from 1942 to 1966.  The home was built in 1923 in the Spanish Colonial Revival style by California Architect Frederick H. Wallis.

The home faced demolition after being damaged in the Sierra Madre earthquake, but was repaired and saved to remain an important part of Monrovia's history.

It's for sale? Let me know when they have an open house.

Kelly: A beautiful house with a lot of history. If only this house could talk.

Altadenahiker: It was for sale, you just missed it. I think it just recently closed.

Great shot, Keith . I love old houses and especially dig this one. My house, which is on Foothill, was also damaged in the Sierra Madre quake. I am a writer, hmm.

Your photo is absolutely ethereal, Keith. Beautiful.
That book along with Grapes of Wrath were absolute favorites of mine in youth. I've always wanted to see this home. In fact, me and the hiker tried to find it after I pointed out Monrovia Canyon to her.

Steve: It's an earthquake conspiracy. At least you're in good company.

PerthDailyPhoto: There's a lot of nice detail to this house.

Petrea: I always feel funny taking photos of someone's house. I took advantage while the house was empty to take my time, use a tripod and do it right.

Pas Adj: Good for you! The book is still in my massive "to read" pile.
