The Gamble House
4 Westmoreland Place, Pasadena
Built in 1908, the Gamble House is the most complete and best-preserved example of the work of renowned Pasadena architects Charles and Henry Greene. Today an internationally recognized National Historical Landmark, the Gamble House was built in the style of the American Arts and Crafts movement for David and Mary Gamble of the Procter and Gamble Company. The architects worked closely with the Gambles in the design of the house, incorporating specific design elements to complement art pieces belonging to the family.
Fortunately, the Gamble family realized the immense artistic importance of the house, and it remained in the Gamble family until 1966, when it was deeded to the city of Pasadena in a joint agreement with the University of Southern California School of Architecture.
