Glendale, Los Angeles, California, USA

In 1798, José María Verdugo, a corporal in the Spanish army from Baja California, received the Rancho San Rafael from Governor Diego de Borica, formalizing his possession and use of land on which he had been grazing livestock and farming since 1784...

In 1860, his grandson Teodoro Verdugo built the Verdugo Adobe, which is the oldest building in Glendale.

In 1884, residents gathered to form a townsite and chose the name "Glendale"...

Glendale incorporated in 1906, and annexed Tropico 12 years later.
