When they returned in 1927 to Pasadena, they built a Norman-style house “as a reminder of their courtship.” Beach House has recently become a designated landmark and will be one of four homes on Pasadena Heritage‘s “Remarkable Historic Homes” tour on March 30th.

Included in this self-paced tour is the 1902 Silver Queen House that was “completely redesigned as an elegant Tudor mansion in 1922 by the silver mining Holmes family.”

Another stop is Bissell House, an 1887 Shingle Style Victorian Era home, which is a South Pasadena Cultural Landmark and was regaled as the “‘center of hospitality for friends and family,’ including such famous guests as Albert Einstein.”

Anna Bissell McCay, daughter of vacuum magnate Melville Bissell, was one of Pasadena’s most beloved philanthropists. Having moved from Michigan, she resided in the Victorian estate that is known today as Bissell House from 1902 until the mid 1950s, at which time her granddaughters inherited the estate.
