Catlin Court was one of Glendale's early fashionable neighborhoods where

mayors, merchants, doctors, ministers, builders and educators lived in homes

that represented the Craftsman Bungalow and other popular building styles of

the time. The neighborhood began in the fall of 1914, as Glendale entered a

time of growth and prosperity, when Glendale State Bank President Lafayette

Myers convinced Otto Hansen, a Wisconsin investor, to develop an 80-acre

tract of land within the city limits. Myers formed a real estate agency with

A. A. Carrick to promote the sale of lots in the subdivision called Catlin Court

(Catlin was the maiden name of Hansen's wife). Both speculative and custom

homes were constructed from copy-book house plans provided by G. W.

Protzman, owner of the Glendale Lumber Company.

The Glendale Townsite/Catlin Court Historic District is the area bounded by

59th Avenue, Gardenia Avenue, 58th Avenue, Myrtle Avenue, 57th Avenue, and

Palmaire Avenue.
