Preservation Foundation Puts Craftsman Homes on Full Display

Coincidentally, craftsman bungalow homes will be the topic of the South Pasadena Preservation Foundation’s annual meeting June 27 at the city’s historic Woman’s Club, at 1424 Fremont Ave.

The meeting begins at 6:30 p.m. and the public is invited.

“While craftsman-style residences are easily identifiable, they are not all alike,” said foundation President Jennifer Trotoux. “Craftsman residential architecture in Southern California includes several major substyles, ranging from the original Stickley version to the Swiss chalets.”

The Preservation Foundation is working on several new ways to showcase areas of the city that has stories which may have not been sung.

Trotoux said the organization wants to provide tours of the Raymond Hill neighborhood and showcase the multi-family development of the hill.

“We are also looking at mid-20th century modernism and expand the types of building that we want to show — from bungalow courts to garden apartments,” Trotoux said.

The foundation is working with a local group called South Pas Active Streets to do two walking tours, which will get residents out into various neighborhoods.
