What a lovely afternoon at the historic McNally house! Frank Mayor and Huan Gu were incredibly gracious and welcoming to almost 150 Altadena Heritage members. The turn-of-the-century Queen Anne-style home could not have been more perfect for evoking an old-fashioned winter holiday…the warm hardwood throughout, the lights strung along the terrace eaves, the fireplaces aglow and the gas-lit chandeliers casting mellow light. Frank and Huan invited guests to wander throughout their home including up to the third floor to view Altadena from inside the famous dome where views of Christmas Tree Lane are prominent.
Altadena Heritage Chair Val Zavala gave members a review of a very busy year. Cellist Sarah O’Brien’s music filled the stunning Turkish room where former owner and long-time resident, Pierre Dupuy, shared with guests what it was like to live in this landmark home.
Thanks to all who helped make the 2022 Holiday Gathering one of our most memorable.
