Bungalow Heaven is a charming historical neighborhood in Pasadena, California.    Sunset Magazine called  it  “The Best in the West.”

Among Bungalow Heaven’s 800 homes built from the 1900s to the 1930s  are some of the best examples of the historic American Craftsman Movement.   Bungalow Heaven was entered in the list of National Register of Historic Places in 2008.

On April 10, 2011 from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m. Bungalow Heaven’s Neighborhood Association invites you to their neighborhood for a taste of history, good food, and music.Enjoy a walking tour of selected homes in the neighborhood as well a close up view of life during the early days of Bungalow Heaven at the Living History Home featuring costumed actors.

At the birth of this neighborhood, when climate, opportunity, and trolley lines brought a population boom to Pasadena, a Craftsman bungalow could be bought for around $2,500, or built from a kit for even less. The late-19th century, post-Victorian American Craftsman Movement represented a radically different architectural, design and lifestyle philosophy following the industrial revolution, rejecting that era’s Victorian ornateness and “scientific” opulence.

The movement prized simplicity and integrity of design and utility, while focusing on the value of natural harmony and materials in the finished construction.Tickets are $18.00 in advance or $20.00 the day of. For more information see:  http://www.bungalowheaven.org/
