This was the final home of the late film and television actress, popular in the 1940's and 1950's. She was a major MGM contract star. She won the Golden Globe Award for Best Actress for her performance in "Too Young to Kiss" (1951). From 1959-1961, she hosted and occasionally starred in her own CBS anthology series, "The DuPont Show with June Allyson". She had been in failing health since undergoing a hip-replacement surgery, and died at the age of 88 in 2006 at this home. Her death was a result of pulmonary respiratory failure and acute bronchitis. Her husband of nearly 30 years, David Ashrow, was at her side.
