Your Name - Your Memory - Your History

The order deadline to be included in the Spring 2017 installation has passed. The order deadline for the Winter installation will be announced soon.

In July 2016, Pasadena Museum of History was thrilled to announce the donation of the Ernest A. Batchelder Tile Collection and Archives by architectural historian and Trustee Emeritus, Robert Winter, PhD.

To celebrate this gift, PMH launched a Commemorative Tile Campaign to create a new donor recognition site located on the front steps of the Museum’s History Center.

You are invited to create your own legacy by sponsoring a Commemorative Tile. Inspired by the Arts & Crafts tradition, these tiles provide you with the opportunity to acknowledge someone in your life, mark a significant occasion, or display your love of Pasadena and its history. Your sponsorship will also convey your support of the Museum’s mission to preserve and share the rich history of our community.

We hope that you will visit the Museum to view the Commemorative Tiles on the steps of the History Center and to view the landmark exhibition Batchelder: Tilemaker.
