The Gamble House

The Gamble House in Pasadena was designed by architects Greene & Greene and was built in 1908. I finally got around to touring it back in February and it did not disappoint. Tours start every 20 minutes on the weekends and the docents were extremely knowledgeable. The house was made in the Arts and Crafts style which I was happy and anxious to learn more about. The whole operation was very professional and organized and I LOVED the bookstore; it had all kinds of stuff from many different architects. And the bookstore/original garage was Doc Brown's lab in Back to the Future! Fun fact! I definitely recommend checking it out.
