Friendship Baptist Church
Dayton Street, west of Fair Oaks Avenue, was once a center of the African American community in Pasadena, centered around Friendship Baptist Church. Produced by Pasadena Heritage and the City’s Cultural Commission, this video tells the story of a thriving neighborhood. For more than a decade, from the mid-1980s until our move to the Madison House, Pasadena Heritage’s offices were located in the Church, and is part of our history, too. Come for popcorn, camaraderie, and the re-telling of this chapter of Pasadena history.
Pasadena Heritage works to identify, preserve, and protect the historic, architectural, and cultural resources of the City of Pasadena through advocacy and education.
