Architecture & Design

NW Exterior. The Gamble House.

January 14, 2016 marked the 50th anniversary of the gift of the Gamble House from the Gamble family to the City of Pasadena and the University of Southern California. This generous gift agreement allowed the Gamble House to open its doors to the public in September of the same year.

The Gamble House was designed in 1908 by architects Greene & Greene. It was commissioned by David and Mary Gamble, of Proctor & Gamble in Cincinnati, Ohio, as a winter residence.

The public is invited to celebrate the felicitous moment fifty years ago in which Gamble House became a museum. The landmark arts-and-crafts home is going back to 1966 with self-paced tours for only $1 admission.
