Peter & Aznive Hanoian Home (1945)
3966 E. Huntington Boulevard
The Ranch style home was constructed apparently on speculation by contractor J. W. Bruce in 1945. Of interest is that the City's building department did not approve the 'tile used in the home. Whether this refers to the tile roof or most likely to the walls, (which on the permit were also noted as being tile) is unknown. The walls apparently are constructed of Pumitile, which are hollow masonry units made of cement and pumice pebbles from volcanic deposits along the San Joaquin River. The first residents were Peter and Aznive Hanoian. Peter Hanoian was the son of the founder of the Hanoian Market.
