The Gamble House located in Pasadena, California, has been a National Historic Landmark since 1978 and is a spectacular showcase of the style of architecture called American Arts and Crafts.
Gifted Scandinavian woodworkers labored for 11 months more than 100 years ago to carve and hand-rub the17 different species of wood used to create this home, one of the greatest achievements in American architecture. When finished, it became the home of Procter & Gamble Company's David and Mary Gamble.
Now owned by The City of Pasadena, the University of Southern California operates this spectacular estate and gives regular public and specialty docent-led tours of various lengths. Those tours are the only way to gain access to the gorgeous interior.
Art classes from many places come to study and admire the well-preserved work of the prominent architects Charles and Henry Greene and understand the fine historic significance of the house and its exquisite intricacies of inlay, metal work, and art glass.
