  • It is a wonderful little place that is a few blocks from Old Pasadena and you would definitely miss it if you didn't know about it. I recommend checking it out as they do have a changing exhibit about the history of Pasadena. The estate is really pretty and I will have to come back another day when it isn't raining for a full tour. It is a beautiful little piece of history filled with so many stories and art.
  • Quiet, cozy and informative. A special exhibit of women painters was on at the time I visited including three by African-American women which I liked. The small plot of grounds are plush. I'll visit again in the near future.
