tournament house


it has taken me a long time to post a picture of this pasadena landmark. this white mansion is the current home of the pasadena tournament of roses. it is also a former home of william wrigley (the chewing gum man). all of which can be read about in this wikipedia article.

be sure to vote for your favorite photo of the year!

It's such a beauty. I think they give tours of the house sometimes, but I've never been on one.

The ToR house has free guided tours usually only in the month after the parade up until a few months before the next parade.
I suspect this will be the case in the new year as well.
