HISTORY

Built by Thomas Judd in 1917 for his family, his son, Joseph, raised a family there. Joseph's son, Thomas Judd Jr., grew up in this house, his room being a screened attached to the back. The Judd families lived in the house until 1974.

The structure was very modern compared to the neighboring adobe homes. The style, known as Prairie School Bungalow, had external walls of yellow brick which was considered a luxury in this area at the turn of the century. The interior was finished off in the Arts & Crafts style made popular by Frank Lloyd Wright. Tapered columns and built-in cabinets with glass doors have been restored to their original luster.

This house was purchased by Dr. Mark & Barbara Greene for inclusion in the Green Gate Village in the 1980s. It is known as the Judd Bungalow. The front portion was used as a doctor's office with a residence in the rear. It has been renovated and now has one of the most popular executive suites in the Green Gate Village.
