Luther Burbank Standing in Front of His Home, 1914

Summary

Luther Burbank moved into his new and spacious 12-room home in December 1906, just months after the San Francisco earthquake. The Mission and Colonial Revival design suited popular tastes at the times, while the furnishings ensured Burbank's comfort. His private den opened onto the balcony above the porch which offered a breath of air and a view of staff at work in his experimental gardens.
