The Webb House, built in 1925 for Thompson and Vivian Webb and their four sons, was designed by famed Los Angeles architect Myron Hunt who later designed the Thomas Jackson Library. From the school’s founding until her death in 1968, Vivian Webb would invite each boy to celebrate his birthday in their home. Every alumnus from those early years has a memory of Vivian Webb and the Webb House. Said one alumnus, “She’d have ice cream and root beer and stuff at her house every so often for the kids. She ran what was almost an open house for students half the time.” When Thompson Webb died in 1974, the Webb House became a faculty residence.Webb House interior The Webb House was restored to its early glory in 2006. Today it is home to our Office of Admission and is also a center for alumni and parent gatherings. Visitors to the Webb House will find on its walls many archival photos of the early years of our school, a small library of books authored by Webb alumni, and original furniture from the home's earliest years. Fronting the home is a sculpture of Mr. and Mrs. Webb created by sculptor J. Thomas Hunsucker '64. #The_Webb_House #The_Webb_Schools #Vivian_Webb_School #Webb_School_of_California
