starting anew: transforming pasadena, 1890-1930

Exhibition Sponsors: Paloheimo Trust & Susan Stevens and Family

The forty years between 1890 and 1930 were a dynamic time in Pasadena’s history. The area changed rapidly from a small agricultural community to a renowned winter resort and bustling young city. Newcomers came for many reasons. They were taken by the region’s natural beauty and the opportunities associated with its growth and potential. Starting Anew showcases historic images, documents, artwork, furnishings, clothing, and ephemera selected from the Museum’s collection.

Starting Anew is dedicated to the memory of PMH Project Archivist Julie A. Stires & PMH Volunteers Sid Gally & Carol Watson.
