CGW Goes to Castle Green

Join us for this exciting event at the historic Castle Green (1898) in Pasadena. Explore the original Moorish and Turkish Rooms, Grand Salon, Palm Court, Lobby with the Grand Staircase and the fully restored Bridge interior plus visit many private units. Listen to experts discuss the history of the building and see our pop-up museum of artifacts from the Castle Green archives, including the castings of the “grotesques” and the decorative plaster work used to restore the Bridge exterior. Sip lemonade on the veranda and enjoy live entertainment.

We will meet near the Grand Staircase at 12pm to tour the building, then find a spot on the grounds for a late lunch (bring your own or pre-order from the Mary Lane Cafe).
