Listed on National and Orange County Registers of Historic Places
The Bradford House has been a part of Placentia since 1902 when the prosperous rancher, Albert Sumner Bradford, built it for his family.

The Colonial Revival Style home, a derivative of Queen Anne styling, cost $8,000. With two stories, 15 rooms and a full basement, it is an excellent example of an elegant turn-of-the-century home. The house is furnished in typical 1900-1920 style.

A ruby glass window, coved ceilings, handcrafted hemlock staircase, pocket doors and a double fireplace separating the back parlor and the dining room enhance the first floor. The large kitchen boasts built-in, ceiling-high cupboards and a massive worktable with sugar and flour bins.

The entire downstairs and four of the seven upstairs bedrooms are open for viewing.

In 1973, Mr. Bradford’s descendants gave the house and surrounding 1½ acres to the City of Placentia for the community’s use and enjoyment.
