For the last 100 years, the Judson family has designed stained-glass windows for churches, synagogues, banks, shopping centers and restaurants from coast to coast. The historic stained-glass center has also seen its share of damage caused by earthquakes, including the Long Beach quake in 1933 and the Sierra Madre quake in 1991. But the magnitude 6.6 Northridge earthquake Jan.

When the Sierra Madre earthquake struck, Walter Judson--fourth-generation stained-glass maker of the historic Judson Studios in Highland Park--was conducting a tour of cathedrals in England. "A report came over the radio . . . then we didn't hear another word," recalls Judson. "We didn't know whether they were talking about the town or the mountain range."

The building where the Judson family has made stained glass for 70 years is an oddly enchanting place, growing noticeably weary on the outside yet still vital with the spirit of the Craftsman movement that it represents. Judson Studios stands at the end of a long driveway curving off Avenue 66 just a few paces south of busy York Boulevard. Yet it seems entirely removed in time and place. There, the present generation of Judsons and a dozen workers manufacture monumental windows for America's churches and secular palaces.

Warned by a doctor about his failing health, 19th-Century painter and art professor William Lees Judson decided in 1893 to leave behind the harsh Canadian winters of London, Ontario, and spend his last days in a more pleasant climate. A practical man, Judson figured that "since he was going to die, he was going to die warm," said his great-grandson, Walter W.

Stained glass has been a glory of churches since the Dark Ages. We can hardly imagine the impact that a glowing expanse of stained glass had on a serf whose life was almost as circumscribed as that of animals he tended. We tend to think of ours as an era of relentless change--one in which your new computer is barely up and running before it is out of date.

On occasion, in the dusty alcoves of Judson Studios near Highland Park, sunlight will strike a few of the leaden glass tiles that artisans are painstakingly piecing together. The gold glimmer causes David Judson to catch his breath. Such was the case this April, when Judson, great-great-grandson of William Lees Judson, who founded the studios 102 years ago, caught a glimpse of the "fireplace mosaic." "I was amazed," he says. "It looked exactly like the one at the Ennis-Brown House."

The Los Angeles city Cultural Heritage Commission recommended Wednesday that an 83-year-old Craftsman-style home in Highland Park be declared a historic-cultural monument, alleviating concern over its future. The concern arose when a program for abused children that operated out of the home closed last year after 40 years. The home, built with river-bed boulders, was designed by Los Angeles architect Robert Edmund Williams.

A month after federal officials recommended a $453-million restoration of the Los Angeles River, the nonprofit group L.A. Commons has organized the free Festival of Neighborhoods to highlight the ways in which the river connects the city. The third annual Found L.A: Festival of Neighborhoods on Sunday will consist of 17 events to lure people out of their own environs, including a tour of Judy Baca's half-mile-long mural in the Tujunga flood control channel, the Sepulveda Basin Wildlife Reserve in Encino, the Ballona Wetlands in Playa del Rey, Amir's Garden in Griffith Park, Compton Creek, Judson Studios in Highland Park and Hansen Dam.  The Los Angeles County Bicycle Coalition will host a bike path tour at 3 p.m. beginning at Oso Park in Elysian Valley and concluding at the Golden Road Brewery alongside the river.
