Exterior view of Bolton Hall right after construction. Bolton Hall served as the first city hall and jail. Bolton Hall was built by George Harris in August of 1913. The building is unique in its construction because large rocks were used and small stones were used in the mortar to fill the gaps between the rocks. There were three fountains on the corner. The lowest one to the ground was for dogs, the middle one was for horses, and the highest one was for people. Later the fountains were destroyed, but the building has withstood several earthquakes. The hall served as a town meeting place where church services, dances, socials, and other events were held. The Bolton Hall Museum is located at 10110 Commerce, Tujunga, CA 91042.
