Name that Location

Nov 3, 2009

Editor’s note: We have a winner. Read the comments to discover the answers.

It’s time for our first-ever Hometown Pasadena contest: Name that Location. The three houses pictured here are all in the same neighborhood, and each has served (or is serving) as a star in a film or TV series.

The first person to correctly name the neighborhood and which house appeared (appears) in which production wins a book double header: Hometown Pasadena 2009.2010 and EAT: Los Angeles. That’s a combined $45 value, although of course we think they’re worth even more. The only catch is that you’ll have to pick them up.

Enter in the comments section, and we’ll contact the first winner. (Note to advisor Sally H — you can’t enter!)

  3. Sarah says:

    House #1 is on San Pasqual. That’s the only one I know!

  4. jen hicks says:

    i believe that neighborhood is called pasadena gardens.

    #1 — father of the bride house definitely on el molino
    #2 — mad men (but it does resemble the rumor has it house which is in that same neighborhood)

    i don’t know #3 but to put in a reasonable guess; brothers & sisters.

  5. Colleen Dunn Bates says:

  9. I know the neighborhood & houses, but not much of TV tube watcher.

  10. vicki pasadena says:

    Brother’s and sister’s house is on Lombardy. Remember Doc Brown’s house from “Back to the Future” is the Gamble House

  11. Colleen Dunn Bates says:

    You guys are all really close, but you’re off by one house. The contest is still on!

  12. Matt A says:

    First two have been guessedand I swear the 3rd looks just like a house on El Molino (1315, I think) but I can’t find anything about something being filmed there. I’m stumped!

  13. Connie Henry says:

    Prospect Boulevard in Pasadena

  14. Colleen Dunn Bates says:

    Connie, sorry but no. Jenna, Susan C and Jen Hicks are very close, just missing the hard one. Matt A sounded like he was getting close…..

  15. GABY B says:

    My guess is Father of the Bride, Mad Men and Chinatown. in the Madison Heights neighborhood. That’s my guess and i’m stickin to it. g

  16. Colleen Dunn Bates says:

    Ding ding ding ding! We have a winner. The first house is indeed the Father of the Bride House on El Molino, which everyone knows. The second is the Drapers’ house from Mad Men, on the corner of Arden and El Molino (facing Arden). The final house was Faye Dunaway’s house in Chinatown. It is on El Molino south of the other houses.

    Gaby B, I’ll contact you and get you your prizes!

    1. Eight is Enough
    2. Mad Man
    3. Father of the Bride (In laws House)

  18. suzanne says:

    The so-called “father of the bride” house is on Madison between Alpine and Glenarm (I know because I grew up on that block) No. 2 is also on Madison, and the third one looks like it is further down on El Molino or Oakland, below Glen ARm.

  19. Colleen Dunn Bates says:

    Suzanne, I hate to correct you, but the Father of the Bride house is on El Molino, not Madison– I still remember watching it being filmed there. The Mad Men house is on the northeast corner of El Molino and Arden, and yes, the final one is on El Molino south of Glenarm.
