PMH is excited to welcome back Grace Hill resident and environment planner, Tom Priestley, Ph.D., to present his illustrated presentation on the history of Pasadena’s Grace Hill. Learn about the evolution of this neighborhood from the time before the Indiana Colony settled this area to the present. The small hill changed ownership throughout the years before eventually becoming the home of William Stanton and his family in 1890. Grace Hill and the Stanton Mansion – designed by famed architect, Fredrick Roehrig – were later sold at auction and subdivided in 1922.

Join Dr. Priestley for this illustrated presentation featuring newly added images and information as he explores the neighborhood’s physical changes over the many years and highlights the vestiges of the area’s past that are still visible today.

Presentation will begin at 7:00 pm; PMH Galleries will be open for viewing at 6:00 pm.

This program will provide a backdrop for Walktober Pasadena’s tour of Grace Hill neighborhood led by Tom Priestley, Ph.D. on Saturday, October 22 and Sunday, October 23. More information on Walktober Pasadena and the Grace Hill neighborhood walk, please visit www.WalktoberPasadena.org
