The Great Mausoleum at Forest Lawn Memorial Park in Glendale, California was fashioned after Campo Santo in Genoa, Italy, once described in Time Magazine as the "New World's Westminster Abbey". In 2009 the cemetery became the focus of intense media interest surrounding the private entombing of Michael Jackson in the privacy of Holly Terrace in the Great Mausoleum. The mausoleum is the final resting place of movie greats Jean Harlow, Clark Gable, Carole Lombard, Irving Thalberg and a host of other stars. Located at 1712 S. Glendale Avenue, Glendale, CA 91205.

Picturesque Bronson Canyon in the Hollywood Hills has an eclectic mix of architectural styles, including several that fit into the Storybook category, a style popularized in Hollywood of the 1920s, after World War I veterans returned with remembrance of the small villages they passed through on the warfront. Many of these homes were designed by Hollywood set directors who romaticized this vision in film and architecture.
