Adorable 1910 Alhambra House Where Norman Rockwell Got Married Hits The Market For First Time In 60 Years

New, 32 comments


Per its listing, this sweet 1910 Craftsman in Alhambra was the childhood home of Norman Rockwell's second wife, Mary Barstow. The iconic illustrator met Barstow, a local schoolteacher, during a trip he made to the San Gabriel Valley town to visit a friend in 1930, and married her at the family residence shortly thereafter. Now on the market for the first time in 60 years, the 2,746-square-foot house features six bedrooms, two baths, a sunroom, a library, hardwood floors, moldings, a decorative fireplace, French doors and windows, and built-ins galore. Sited on a .3-acre lot, the property is listed in a trust sale at $748,000.
