The City of Pasadena will launch Historic Places Pasadena: Completing Our Story!
By News Desk
Pasadena has a rich and complex history. The city currently has more than 375 designated historic properties and dozens of historic districts such as Old Pasadena and Bungalow Heaven. However, these landmarks, while celebrated for their architectural significance, only scratch the surface of Pasadena’s diverse tapestry—a story that extends beyond structures to encompass the places that represent the people, events, and dynamic social and cultural influences that have shaped the city.
The goal of the Historic Places Pasadena project, led by the Design and Historic Preservation division of the City’s Planning Department, is to write a complete history of the city and identify significant historic places in Pasadena.
Join the official project launch at a special Historic Preservation Commission meeting on Tuesday, November 7, 6:30 pm, in the City Hall Council Chambers (100 N. Garfield Avenue, Room #S249).
Share Your Story
As the Historic Places Pasadena project unfolds, it promises to be a collaborative effort that goes beyond the traditional boundaries of historic preservation. Pasadena residents are encouraged to engage with the project and share their stories, ensuring that every detail of Pasadena’s rich history is acknowledged and celebrated.
