Taking Stock of Historic Homes

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.

houseThe 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 www.cityofpasadena.net/chrid. 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 www.cityofpasadena.net/planningcomments. You can also call
744-7806, send a fax to 396-7259, email kevinjohnson@cityofpasadena.net or send submissions to 175 N. Garfield Ave., Pasadena CA 91101-1704.
