Golden Poppy Celebration – May 21st, 2017

More than 130 people gathered at the distinctive Green Man Lodge on May 21 for Altadena Heritage’s 13th annual Golden Poppy Spring Garden Celebration and Awards. Steve Pribyl provided shimmering live music on his uilleann pipes, an Irish folk woodwind related to bagpipes. The usual abundance of food came with wine and bubbly supplied by board member Gail Casburn of the Altadena Ale & Wine House, and beer donated by member Mark Jilg of the Craftsman Brewing Company.

The AHA! Program

The AHA! Program

From time to time someone nominates, and our board designates, an Altadena Heritage Area or AHA! An AHA can be a street, a neighborhood or a place that stands out for one reason or another and has fostered its own community.

It all started because Los Angeles is the only major county in California without a historic preservation ordinance, and we are always looking for a way to recognize and raise awareness of the wealth of interesting historic homes and neighborhoods in our town.

Golden Poppy Awards and Garden Party

Golden Poppy Awards and Garden Party

Altadena Heritage has held garden parties ever since its inception in 1988. In 2004, the Golden Poppy Awards were added to the annual Spring/Summer garden party event. These awards recognize gardens that “present to the street,” enhancing the community for everyone.

AHAD: Altadena Heritage Architecture Database

AHAD: Altadena Heritage Architecture Database

Altadena Heritage was founded in the early 1980s, when many beautiful old homes and mansions were being demolished and replaced with tract developments, placing our community’s architectural heritage in peril. Members at the time did a comprehensive survey of the existing pre-war homes, and conducted research on builders and architects.

Why Support Altadena Heritage

Why Support Altadena Heritage

At Altadena Heritage we put on events and programs every year. Our board of directors – a varying group who have joined because they love where we live and want to help Altadena become a more lively and vibrant community – gather once a month and we plot.

We ask ourselves: How can we raise awareness of what we have here in our community? How can we help our citizens become more connected to each other, to this place and to its history? What would make our community better and how can we promote positive change?
