The Glendale Townsite/Catlin Court Historic District is the area bounded by 59th Avenue, Gardenia Avenue, 58th Avenue, Myrtle Avenue, 57th Avenue, and Palmaire Avenue.
The neighborhood began in the fall of 1914 when Glendale State Bank President Lafayette Myers convinced Otto Hansen, a Wisconsin investor, to develop an 80-acre tract of land within the city limits. Myers formed a real estate agency with A. A. Carrick to promote the sale of lots in the subdivision called Catlin Court (Catlin was the maiden name of Hansen's wife). Both speculative and custom homes were constructed from copy-book house plans provided by G. W. Protzman, owner of the Glendale Lumber Company.
The Catlin Court is now the home of many specialty shops, galleries and restaurants.
