Here are our suggestions of things to do in Los Angeles this weekend…
Upstairs-Downstairs at the Gamble House
Now for a limited time this summer the Gamble House will once again open its servants’ quarters for exclusive “Upstairs Downstairs” tours. Visitors to the Gamble House from July 30 through August 16 will be able to compare the living quarters of the served with those “in service.” New information recently emerged about the Gamble family and their servants that allows us to share more of the personal history of those who lived and worked at 4 Westmoreland Place. Visit the original laundry and coal rooms in the basement, the surprisingly light and accommodating servants’ bedrooms, and learn about the multi-ethnic staff that helped make the Gambles’ lives in Pasadena more comfortable. And don’t worry, you’ll also see the public spaces and family rooms that make our classic 1-hour tour so popular: the meticulous craftsmanship of Greene & Greene furniture, the specially-designed leaded art glass light fixtures, and unique architectural features designed by the Greenes exclusively for the Gamble family. Learn just how the Gambles lived in, maintained and appreciated their beautiful Greene & Greene house!
