DESCRIPTION
The public is invited to celebrate the 50th Anniversary of the Gamble House being a museum, by going back to 1966 with self-paced tours of the Gamble House for only $1 admission. There will be food trucks, fun family activities on the lawn such as soap carving, kids? woodworking workshops, live music and much more on Sunday, September 25, 2016; noon ? 5:00 p.m.

The Gamble House is located at 4 Westmoreland Place, Pasadena, CA 91103

For more information on the Gamble House 50th Anniversary celebration week please visit http://gamblehouse.org/50th/ or call (626) 793-3334.

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. In the half century since then, The Gamble House has become one of the most beloved premier historic sites in America.

In addition to the public event on September 25, the Gamble House 50th Anniversary Celebration Week includes a Gala Dinner on September 21 with dinner, a preview of the new documentary film about the Gamble House, produced by longtime Disney producer, Donald Hahn (The Lion King, Beauty and the Beast, etc.), and other special guests. Sponsorship packages are available and individual tickets start at $250. In addition, on Saturday, September 24, the Gamble House will hold a USC Trojan Family Open House which also includes $1 admission for self-paced tours, food trucks, fun family activities and live music.

Visitors continue to visit, week in and week out, from around the world to marvel at the beauty imbedded in every square foot of The Gamble House. They come to experience what Charles Greene called ?architecture as a fine art.? Hailed by the American Institute of Architects as ?formulators of a new and native architecture,? Charles Sumner Greene (1868?1957) and Henry Mather Greene (1870?1954) designed houses and furnishings a century ago that established a new paradigm for the art of architecture in the United States. Drawing on the skills of outstanding craftsmen, as well as their own polytechnic training, formal architectural education, and natural artistic sensibilities, Greene and Greene created legendary living environments that were beautiful, functional and modern.

The flowering of the Greene?s careers together was brief and typically benefited a discriminating and wealthy clientele. They produced their most characteristic work between 1906 and 1914, primarily in and around Pasadena. Of their fully coordinated houses with interior furnishings, only the Gamble House survives intact.
