The Garfield Heights neighborhood in Pasadena traces its history to 1881, when two Iowa farmers purchased the land that became known as Garfield Heights. Many of the area's homes were built between 1890 and 1920, and reflect a variety of architectural styles, including Queen Anne, American Foursquare, Spanish Revival, Tudor, Ranch, and most predominantly Craftsman.
Living artfully in a historic neighborhood is the theme of this year’s 10th Garfield Heights Landmark District home tour on Sunday, December 4, from 11 a.m. to 4 p.m.
Six distinctive homes, representing both Arts and Crafts and Tudor Revival architectural styles, will provide visitors with the essence of gracious living in a neighborhood whose architectural history spans the period between 1880 and 1930.
This year’s tour will feature two homes sharing unique family connections with other homes on the tour. And a spectacular Chalet-style Craftsman, featured in a television movie, will demonstrate the way that residents have adapted their homes to meet contemporary needs while preserving the neighborhood’s history and architectural integrity.
Neighborhood artists will demonstrate their works, emphasizing the unique ways that residents of Pasadena’s second oldest historic district have used the neighborhood as an inspiration for their work in sculpture, art, animation and graphic design. The Home Tour will also feature local vendors, including Sassafras Pottery, the Gamble House Bookstore and
