As an alternative to Pasadena Heritage's traditional Old Pasadena Walking Tours, you can now take a tour of the district on their new Old Pasadena Virtual Tour Series. These tours will be given over Zoom with trained docents who will lead you on a visual presentation through the historic district and reveal its many hidden and unusual architectural details, old alleyways, and historic signs.

In June, the Old Pasadena virtual tour will include visits to several alleyways. The historic alleyways are nearly unchanged since their Victorian-era beginnings. One of the visits will be to Mercantile Place, the back end of several well-known establishments that fronted Colorado Boulevard, including Hertel’s Dry goods, J.W. Woods druggist, Hotaling & Co. men’s clothing, and the original A. C. Vroman’s bookstore. It also included a grocer, a confectioner, a baker, a jeweler, and The Pasadena and Valley Union newspaper, the only paper in town in the late 1880s-1890s.
