OLD PASADENA WALKING TOUR SOUTH – OCTOBER
Saturday, October 7, 2023 | 10:00 AM – 11:30 AM
Tickets $18 members | $22 nonmembers
October’s Old Pasadena Walking Tour will include historic Dayton Street and some of our first Black-owned businesses, the first fire station, and Friendship Pasadena Church (formerly known as Friendship Baptist Church.) It also includes Mills Place, the location of what the L.A. Times would call “The Night of Terror.” Learn the story of how the burning of a Chinese laundry in 1885 began the expulsion from Pasadena’s first commercial district of our Chinese population.
Old Pasadena has had many transformations over its many years as our first commercial center. Without Pasadena Heritage, this National Register Historic District would have been destroyed! Now it is one of the finest examples of downtown revitalizations in the country. Tours last approximately 1.5 hours with a walking distance of approximately 1 mile.
Old Pasadena tours graciously sponsored by the Old Pasadena Management District.
Our next Old Pasadena Walking Tour will be on August 5th and feature locations north of Colorado Boulevard.
