Join us on Sunday, September 29 for brunch in Pasadena followed by a 1-hour tour of the Gamble House, considered one of the best preserved examples of Arts & Crafts architecture. This style emerged in rebellion against machine-made, mass-produced goods. It emphasized craftsmanship, creative expression, and the use of natural materials found locally.
The Gamble house is considered an Arts & Crafts masterpiece, it was designed by the architectural firm Greene and Greene, and was constructed in 1908–09 as a winter home for David B. Gamble of the Procter & Gamble company. Today it is a National Historic Landmark, a California Historical Landmark, and open to the public for tours and events.
Tickets for the tour are $15. We are taking the 1:40 p.m. tour. Click here to purchase your ticket, then click on the button: “Buy Tickets with Acme.” Then follow the prompts, selecting the date (Sept. 29) and the time (1:40) and purchase the number of tickets you need.
