Bette Davis's California English Tudor home in Wood's Cove is another must-see attraction in Laguna Beach. It was built in 1929, is a registered historic structure, and still has the "D" on the chimney. It is located off of Diamond Street at 1991 Ocean Way. In 1957 Bette was scheduled to appear in the Pageant of the Masters, but an injury forced her to cancel last minute.
The other day I was jogging by Larry Gill's "Water Lilly" sculpture and saw him there fixing the water pump. Join me on my Heisler Park / Downtown Tour to see three of his pieces: "Water Lilly", "Tidepool Paddleboard", and "North and South Waves". You can also see Larry exhibiting at the Sawdust Festival this summer.
History and beauty come together at Moss Point in Laguna Beach. The mixture of Craftsman and Cape Cod style house at Moss Point was built in 1917, for Col. Henry House, who was the brother of Col. Edward House. Col. Edward House was considered the man most responsible for getting Woodrow Wilson elected as President of the United States. Moss Point is also known for incredible tide pools and scuba diving.
This house, built in 1883, is the oldest home in Laguna Beach. It was constructed of wood floated in from boats, wood from shipwrecks, and driftwood. Currently under a remodel approved by our Heritage Committee and Design Review Board, this shingle bungalow style cottage is in our Pearl Street District. 154 Pearl St.
