While organizing the historical records of Loyola High in preparation for their upcoming sesquicentennial history book we discover that patron Charles Pinney lived nearly one hundred in this same Angeleno Heights home.
Grandfather Charles H. Pinney purchased the home from the original developers in 1888 and the cache of documents include correspondence concerning the purchase and a tract map of the original neighborhood.
In 1896 Charles started up Pinney & Boyle, a steel products manufactor in downtown Los Angeles until he retired to manage his investment portfolio and travel. Living for over 106 years, after 1888 Pinney never moved from his boyhood home.
By 1978 the Carroll Avenue home was designated as a landmark in the first City of Los Angeles Historical Overlay Zone. (HOZ).
The archivist visited the home in November 2012 and discovered an episode of "Mad Men" underway at the site.
