Pasadena is a treasure trove of historic architecture. Thanks to a new state
grant, we’re documenting some of the oldest buildings and you can help.
California Office of Historic Preservation recently awarded Pasadena a grant to
study homes built between 1881 and 1904. For the next five months city staff
will be driving through neighborhoods and carefully recording information,
snapping photos and evaluating the historic significance of homes built during
this pre-Craftsman era.
The properties will be added to a database of historic properties at
As part of this project, Pasadena will nominate two historic districts and 10
individual homes for listing on the National Register of Historic Places.
The study should be completed by September 2010. To monitor progress or submit
comments, questions or suggestions, or if you can provide copies of historical
photos from this period, visit
