    The homes in Pickens Canyon tend to have larger lots and eclectic styles. People love the connection to nature paired with a relatively convenient location.

    The history of Pickens canyon is nothing short of a hoot. John Newcombe made the film “Rancho La Canada, Then and Now” and recounts the story of the rascally Colonel Theodore Pickens.

    Apparently, Pickens, who moved to La Crescenta for his health was a squatter! He dammed up the river and told real estate developer John Lanterman that he would have to pay a hefty price for the water.

    Lanterman (who was obviously a wise man ahead of his time) sent his wife to negotiate. According to Newcombe, Mrs. Lanterman whipped out a shotgun, pressed it to Col. Pickens head, and said, “You’re going to sell me those water rights before I leave this cabin”

    Mrs. Lanterman got the water and Pickens got $500 in gold – and a chance to live another day.

    Mountain Ave.
    Mountain Ave is considered one of Glendale’s top schools. However, the wise parent should find out the current state of the Sagebrush transfer. If the transfer is approved, a large number of Mountain Ave. students could transfer to La Canada elementary schools. This issue has been around since the 1950’s but recent events have made the possibility far more real.

    Rosemont Middle School
    Crescenta Valley High School
