South Orange Grove Boulevard: From Millionaires’ Mansions to Contemporary Condos

Saturday, September 17, 2016

Lecture – 10:00 a.m.  Tour – 11:00 a.m. to 3:00 p.m.

Last year’s lecture and walking tour of South Orange Grove Blvd. explored the neighborhood’s dramatic postwar transformation from grand Victorian mansions to mid-century garden apartments that are south of California Blvd. This fall we will revisit the captivating tale and expand the tour, focusing on the section of South Orange Grove Blvd. that is north of California Blvd. From the handful of millionaires’ mansions and courtyard apartments that remain to the contemporary condominiums they influenced, Preservation Director Jesse Lattig will trace the evolution of the neighborhood. After her illustrated lecture, guests can walk along South Orange Grove Blvd. and enjoy the variety of architectural expression. Several properties on the route will be open for tours.

The illustrated lecture begins at 10:00 a.m. at Maranatha High School – 169 S. St. John Ave., Pasadena, CA 91105. Self-guided walking tours of South Orange Grove Blvd. north of California Blvd. follow from 11:00 a.m. to 3:00 p.m.

Members: $35
