South Orange Grove - Mid-Century Living on Millionaire's Row
Saturday, May 16, 2015
Lecture - 10:00 a.m.
Tour - 11:00 - 3:00 p.m.

In honor of National Preservation Month, Pasadena Heritage presents a lecture and walking tour of the early garden apartment complexes on South Orange Grove Boulevard. Once known as "Millionaire's Row," this neighborhood saw a significant shift in architectural style, from grandiose Victorian-style mansions to mid-century garden apartments, as a result of economic shifts and population explosion following World War II.

An illustrated lecture at 10am will present the story behind the Boulevard's dramatic transformation and the cast of prominent residents and architects involved, followed by walking tours from 11am - 3pm of selected locations, including docent-led presentations of unit interiors and private courtyards.

Tickets on sale now through . Same-day tickets can be purchased at the Westridge School for Girls, 324 Madeline Drive, Pasadena, CA 91105 between 9:30 a.m. and 1:00 p.m. For more information call 626-441-6333 or visit Join Pasadena Heritage today to take advantage of the member discount.
