Rubel Castle Nomination

Posted in SPACES News

The Glendora Historical Society has nominated Rubel Castle (Rubel Castle Historic District) as a historic resource to be listed on the National Register of Historic Places. The concept of a “Historic District” for the Pharm property was initiated to encompass the original Albourne Rancho historic citrus buildings in the nomination.

Our nomination will be presented to the State Historical Resources Commission on August 2nd where the merits of this nomination will be debated. It is helpful to have support voiced from members of the community who are interested in the preservation of this unique property, and that is the purpose of this letter.

You may use your own stationery to personalize your support of our nomination, or print out a mailable form from this page <http://www.glendorahistoricalsociety.org/letterToForm.pdf>. You can also use this online form to get suggested wording for an email, if you wish to send your communication that way to <calshpo@parks.ca.gov>.

You may also have received this message by snail mail, in which case you will find a stamped envelope enclosed ready for you to mail off to the state board. Letters and e-mails must be received by the commission by July 15.

Please pass our appeal along to a neighbor or friend who might be interested in supporting this nomination.

Thank you very much for supporting the effort to achieve National Historic Recognition for this unique legacy left for the community by Michael Clarke Rubel. For more details please visit <www.GlendoraHistoricalSociety.org/Nomination.html>

Sincerely,

Scott Rubel
