San Gabriel Valley properties are surrounded by beauty and history. The Gamble House is one of the most well preserved historical structures and an outstanding example of American Arts and Crafts style architecture. It is located in Pasadena, California, which is the oldest incorporated community in the San Gabriel Valley. In 1908, Charles and Henry Greene designed the house and its furnishings for David and Mary Gamble of the Procter & Gamble Company. Since 1978, the house has been designated as a National Historical Landmark, and it remains one of the most well known San Gabriel Valley properties.
The University of Southern California operates the house, and one hour docent-led public tours are available Thursday through Sunday. A variety of in-depth specialty tours designed to focus on features of the house that are not covered on the regular tour are also offered. The Gamble House Bookstore is located in the original garage structure that is adjacent to the main house, and its proceeds directly support the Gamble House. The Bookstore is well-known for its extensive collection of books and periodicals on the Arts and Crafts movement, American Art Pottery, and a broad selection of architecture guidebooks for San Gabriel Valley properties in Pasadena and Los Angeles.
