Officially, the Historic Preservation movement started in 1966 with the passage of the National Historic Preservation Act. Since that time, the city has established protocol for documentation and designation for individual landmarks and historic districts.

Wildrose Historic Distric

The Wildrose Historic District has the distinction of being the first designated Historic District in Monrovia. There are 18 houses in the district located in the 300 Block of Wildrose Avenue; the district includes both sides of Wildrose Avenue bounded by California Avenue on the east, Canyon Boulevard on the west and the alleys to the north and south of Wildrose Avenue. The majority of the houses were built in the early part of the 20th century and are predominately Craftsman Bungalow style, with some designed by the Tifal brothers (Gustav, Charles and William).
