Pasadena

Sitting northeast of downtown Los Angeles, Pasadena was the second city to be incorporated into Los Angeles County in 1886.  Today it is known as one of the most prominent educational and cultural cities in the area.   Pasadena’s scientific  institutions include the Jet Propulsion Laboratory (JPL) and the California Institute of Technology (CalTech).  Among its many cultural institutions are the Pasadena Playhouse, the Norton Simon Museum, the USC Pacific Asia Museum and the Art Center College of Design.

Originally part of the Mexican land grant named Rancho del Rincon de San Pascual, it’s was last owned by Manuel Garfias who sold sections to Anglo settlers in the late 1800’s.   Boasting beautiful scenery and mild climate, Pasadena quickly became a stop for the Santa Fe Railway and a hot tourist destination for snowbirds escaping the northeastern winters. Summer homes were built and the population began to expand. 

There are many homes and buildings in Pasadena with the distinction of National Historical Landmark or which are representative of famous architectural design.  The Gamble House and Cordelia A. Culberson House were both built by Charles and Henry Green, famous for their Craftsman designs during the Arts and Crafts Movement.  In 1910, one of the leaders of the Movement, Ernest A. Batchelder, built the Batchelder House on South Arroyo Blvd.  Pasadena continued to draw famous architects through the years with the homes such as the Millard House, by Frank Lloyd Wright, built in 1923, and the Clark House built by Modernist Richard Neutra in 1957.  A tour of homes is always a nice way to spend the day driving around and seeing the diverse areas of Pasadena.
