Garfield Heights, named in 1904, is the jewel in the crown of Pasadena, California. It is one of the oldest neighborhoods in Pasadena, with one of the city's best collections of residential architecture built mostly between 1890 and 1920.
Garfield Heights possesses many fine examples of American architecture, designed by such eminent architects as Greene & Greene, Frederick Louis Roehrig, Meyer and Holler, Arthur Benton, and Sylvanus Marston. The predominate style of the neighborhood is the wood-framed Craftsman bungalow often accompanied with river rock masonry. Yet there are also excellent examples of Queen Anne, Neo-classical, Spanish Colonial Revival, American Colonial Revival and Tudor Revival houses. In addition, there are a number of historic 2-4 unit apartment buildings and a few 16 unit apartment complexes blended into the fabric of the neighborhood.
Garfield Heights Neighborhood Association's (GHNA) boundaries are Marengo Avenue, Mountain Street, Los Robles Avenue, and Washington Boulevard. Any resident living within these borders is automatically a GHNA member.
The annual Block Party, the biennial Home Tour, Progressive Dinner party, Holiday Cookie Exchange, July Yard Sale, Lawn Bowling, monthly Happy Hours and Trash Walks are popular events hosted by the GHNA.
As proud as the residents of Garfield Heights are of its beautiful historic architecture, we treasure even more the friendships and ties between neighbors.
