Don’t miss a rare opportunity to explore the salons, ballrooms, grounds, and private residences at the historic Castle Green in Pasadena on Friday, June 6, from 5 to 9 p.m. See this Nationally Registered Historic Monument’s unique, quirky beauty up close and personal, while listening to live music by the delightful coquette Janet Klein.
Located at 99 South Raymond Avenue, the Castle Green has kept an “eye out” high atop its seven story towers since 1898. It is a story with two meanings — a unique architectural description and the historic stories of its famous residents. Here it’s easy to see where former residents film director Tim Burton and artist Mark Ryden may have soaked up a little creative inspiration.
The Hotel Green was built in 1893 by George Gill Green and designed by Frederick Roehrig. It was the first of three buildings. The second building was originally known as the “Central Annex” and was later named the Castle Green. The third building was erected in 1903 and is now a separate entity providing senior housing.
The Castle Green apartments with its opulent salons, ballrooms and lovely terraces are independently owned. It is host to many a lavish wedding and a popular film location. The proceeds of those activities go toward the maintenance of the building managed by the Castle Green Homeowners Association. The interior and exterior restoration is the mission of the Friends of the Castle Green, a nonprofit 501c3 organization.
