Join us as we journey south to explore the history of Pasadena! We'll first tour the Gamble House. The Gamble House was designed in 1908 by architects Greene & Greene. It was commissioned by David and Mary Gamble, of Cincinnati, Ohio, as a retirement residence. David Berry Gamble, a second generation member of the Procter & Gamble Company in Cincinnati, had retired from active work in 1895, and with his wife, Mary Huggins Gamble, began to spend winters in Pasadena, residing in the area’s resort hotels. By 1907, the couple had decided to build a permanent home in Pasadena. In June of that year, they bought a lot on the short, private street, Westmoreland Place, passing up the more fashionable address, South Orange Grove, known at that time as “Millionaires’ Row.” We'll then visit the Pasadena Museum of History for a tour of the landmark 1906 Fenyes Mansion and the Finnish Folk Art Museum, and to view the fine art exhibition. The Fenyes Mansion on Pasadena’s famed “Millionaire’s Row,” once home to Dr. Adalbert and Eva Fenyes, holds a special place among Pasadena Museum of History’s many treasures. Original period furnishings, family heirlooms, and a unique California plein air art collection enhance this 1906 Beaux Arts-style architectural jewel.
