Claycord Online Museum – The Larwin Homes & Streets In Concord

September 8, 2021 19:00 pm · 4 comments


Many of you have probably traveled on N. Larwin Dr. or S. Larwin Dr. in Concord. The streets, which surround the Crossings neighborhood near Cowell & Ygnacio, didn’t get named after some local historical figure, they were named after the developers who built the homes back in the 1970s.

Founded in 1948 by developer Larry Weinstein, the Larwin company is based in Southern California, and has built over 20,000 homes in our state. If you check out Google Maps, you will find many streets with the name “Larwin” throughout California.

Many residents in the Crossings neighborhood have the “Larwin” logo (pictured above) embedded into the concrete in front of their homes.

Thanks to Tom for the picture!

You can look up an address on (a real estate listing website) and find the estimated price, recent sale, etc. 4402 Catalpa Ct., Concord, CA sold in May of this year for $1,085,000. It is now estimated by Zillow to be worth $1,154,600. Zillow makes it tricky to create a link, but if this one doesn’t work, just enter any address you want to look up in the Search box.

Is that the guy who came up with the street names Shell Bark, Hock Maple and Sweet Shrub? He should have hired a guy.

I agree…those street names are cringeworthy!
