Our Historical Heritage

Heritage

This historical “craftsman style” construction home was built by Almo Taylor in 1912 and brought to the Heritage Garden Park in 1992. The structure had been home to two families, the Taylors and the Morleys, prior to the move and is now the community home of the West Covina Rose Float Foundation.

Under the management of our Foundation led by Frank Scalfaro and Chris Freeland, our 2-story home has been completely renovated by us with as much historical accuracy through the collaboration of our Foundation with the Mt. San Antonio Interior Design Department, under the guidance and leadership of Professor Karlene Morris who was asked to come out of retirement to handle this hands-on student educational opportunity.

Notable features, in addition to our beautiful home, are our Foundation gardens featuring our signature Rose Garden, our memorial brick path leading to a unique “butterfly scent” garden and a lush display of flowers and ornamental grasses.  Through collaboration with Professor Brian Scott from the Mt. SAC Horticultural Department, our gardens have blossomed into both an outdoor classroom and a lasting symbol of pride and beauty.

We invite you to visit our beautiful home and gardens during our regular Open House held the second Sunday of every month from 1-4pm.
