1. History

Orange Grove Boulevard is one street of several exclusive residential districts in Pasadena. Since the early 20th century, because of the number of landmark mansions, the street earned the name Millionaires Row, an appropriate nickname, considering that the estates that once lined this spacious boulevard and the surrounding neighborhood read like a Whos Who of American consumer products. The maker of Wrigleys chewing gum, William Wrigley Jr.s, significant home was proffered to the city of Pasadena after Mrs. Wrigleys death in 1958, under the condition that their home would be the Rose Parades permanent headquarters. The stately Tournament House stands on Orange Grove Blvd. today, and serves as the headquarters for the Tournament of Roses Parade. In wartime 1942, Orange Grove Boulevard was used as an alternate route for the Rose Parade to avoid an enemy attack.

                                     

1.1. History North Orange Grove Boulevard

Formerly referred to as Mountain Avenue, North Orange Grove Boulevard is home to the exquisite Gamble House. North of Holly Street, the road bends northeast, ending at North Fair Oaks Avenue. The home of David Gamble, son of consumer product maker James Gamble of Procter & Gamble, is located on the north end of Orange Grove Blvd. The Gamble House, an American Craftsman masterpiece, was built in 1908, by architects Charles and Henry Greene, as an exemplification of their Ultimate bungalow. It is open to the public as both an architectural conservancy and museum. The Gamble House is a California Historical Landmark and a National Historic Landmark on the National Register of Historic Places. In 1966 it was deeded to the city of Pasadena in a mutual agreement with the University of Southern California School of Architecture. Ever since that time, two USC architecture students per year have been selected to live in the house full-time.

The Norton Simon Museum is at the intersection of Orange Grove and Colorado boulevards. The museum can be quite clearly seen every year during the Rose Parade broadcast. The parades official start is at Orange Grove Boulevard and Ellis Street.

South Orange Grove Boulevard becomes South Orange Grove Avenue at Columbia Street and its southern terminus is a cul-de-sac in western South Pasadena, passing by Orange Grove Park. Between Columbia Street and Colorado Boulevard, the road is the center of an exclusive neighborhood. In 1876, unimproved land with water could be purchased for about $100 an acre.
