  • Historic Landmark Tour

    The annual Mother’s Day at the Castle Green Tour allows visitors the opportunity to experience the historic landmark on a more intimate level than usual. Sip lemonade on the Veranda, roam the sumptuous public spaces of the Castle including the Grand Salon, the Turkish and Moorish Rooms, the lush grounds, and visit many private apartments.

    Castle Green is an historic Pasadena architectural landmark. It is a grand late Victorian building with its exterior a fusion of Moorish and Spanish while the interior public rooms evoke Victorian and Moorish styles which include a Grand Salon, Moorish and Turkish Rooms, all original in detail and many private apartments, each with a personality of its own. Designed by Frederick Louis Roehrig, a prominent Southern California architect, in 1897 and built the following year, as the first western annex to the Hotel Green and listed in the National Register of Historic Places and is designated a Pasadena Historic Treasure Monument. It was the first steel frame construction in Pasadena, the second in Southern California and most probably the second in the Southwestern United States as well as being a concrete building. In Old Pasadena, it has private, gated grounds which include a lily pond, arched walkways and a long veranda. Many movies have been filmed at the Castle Green including Ben Affleck’s recent Live by Night, Oscar’s Hotel, Zeroville and old favorites such as Bugsy, The Last Samurai, and The Sting.

    Light refreshments will be available on the veranda.
