History of South Pasadena

At the beginning of 1874, the community that is now South Pasadena became part of the San Gabriel-Orange Grove Alliance. In 1875, the members of the community agreed to call their town Pasadena and, only three years later, the citizens of the southern region of Pasadena called themselves South Pasadena.

Only several California towns are better known for their small-town community quality and historic sites in the San Gabriel Valley. Countless movies and shows have been filmed in the area and thanks for the Metro Railway Gold line, it has become a trendy destination for shopping and dining.
