Culver House

Culver House3140 Highland Drive

This Queen Anne-style house was built by Alonzo Culver in 1887. Culver is credited with building some of the town’s early homes, including the Twin Inns (Schutte House). His son Clint gained local fame as a photographer and a colorful character, often seen driving a bullet-riddled Pierce-Arrow. In 1914, Clint was convicted of smuggling Chinese laborers from Mexico, selling them to buyers in Los Angeles. Gertrude Myers, a painter known as the local “Grandma Moses,” lived in the house from 1936 to 1965.
