PASADENA, Calif.— The City of Pasadena is excited to announce the launch of Historic Places Pasadena: Completing Our Story! As part of the ongoing effort to tell the full story of our community through the historic places that help shape our lives today, we’re embarking on an update to the City’s written history. Join us for the official project launch at a special Historic Preservation Commission meeting on Tuesday, November 7, 6:30 p.m., in the City Hall Council Chambers at 100 N. Garfield Avenue, Room #S249.
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 create a complete written history of the city and identify significant historic places in Pasadena.
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, ensuring that every detail of Pasadena's rich history is acknowledged and celebrated.
