Craftsman Weekend 2010

Oct 11, 2010

The Paul House in Altadena, designed by George Webster, will be on the Sunday tour.

Fall is in the air, heat be damned, which means it’s time for Pasadena to get all Craftsmany. It’s a mere two weeks until Pasadena Heritage‘s Craftsman Weekend, which attracts Arts & Crafts fans from all over the country. Because two of the many events over the three-day weekend are already sold out (both involving the Blacker House), we’re sending out the warning: Get your tickets now, or be prepared to miss out.

Number one with a bullet on our list is the bus tour of Pasadena’s bungalow courts, culminating with a celebration at Gartz Court, but that’s because we are crazy for bungalow courts. Your boat might be better floated by the walking tours of Oaklawn or Garfield Heights; the get-outta-Pasadena tour of Craftsman homes in L.A.’s West Adams district; or the Sunday tour of six landmark Arts & Crafts homes in Pasadena and Altadena.

And there’s lots more: To explore it all, go to

Prospect Park's Newby House, designed by Sylvanus Marston, is also on the Sunday tour.
