Built in 1906, this iconic church has deep roots in the history of Pasadena, California. The building was originally constructed in 1906 at the corner of Los Robles Avenue and Walnut Street but was later moved to it's current location in the early 20th Century. The entire church has recently been restored with much care being taken to retain as many of the original elements as possible, such as the stained glass in the sanctuary, original walnut floors and the many arched windows throughout. The restoration has allowed for modern amenities such as central air conditioning, security system, and technology.
