graphicThe living is easy in South Pasadena, and its residents have worked hard to maintain its individual character. South Pasadena has been featured in Sunset Magazine and Angelino Magazine, among others, for its unique architecture and its robust residential real-estate market.

To drive South Pasadena’s residential streets is to step into another time and place. Broad, tree-lined streets offers one of the most condensed samplings of 19th century Foursquare, Victorian Farmhouse, Eastlake and Queen Anne style homes intermingled with 20th century Craftsman, American Colonial, Spanish Colonial and Tudor Revival residences.

South Pasadena boasts 40 registered landmarks, including the Oaklawn Bridge and Waiting Station (1906), the only bridge designed by architects Charles and Henry Greene; the Garfield Residence (1904), a California Craftsman style home built by Greene & Greene.

It was the residence of Lucretia Garfield, widow of assassinated President James A. Garfield.

graphicThe South Pasadena Chamber of Commerce brochure portrays this community as one of Southern California’s oldest cities; "10 Minutes and 113 Years from Los Angeles" describes this charming "Norman Rockwell" hometown.
