The original owners of 5810 Bright Avenue were named Eason and that is why it is referred to as the Eason House. They had moved to Whittier from Oregon, where they had already made their fortune. Although they built the house in 1930 and moved into the home during the Depression, they obviously had made a sizable fortune as their home spared few details. Mr. and Mrs. Eastman, and there two daughters, bought the home in 1947. Eastman was a chemist for Texaco. In 1967, the Taylor family bought the home. 

Local designation date is October 22, 2002.
