Description

In the 1930s, Earhart and her husband, George Putnam built their home in Toluca Lake. There Earhart lived until her 1937 around-the-world flight from which she never returned. It is rumored that a carob tree on the property that still stands was where Earhart first made plans to undertake the infamous journey.
