The Gamble House (Tour #1)

Sign up or log in to save this to your schedule and see who's attending!

By bus from the Sheraton Hotel we will travel a short distance to begin our day at 9:00 with a 2 ½ hour docent-led “Behind the Velvet Ropes” tour of Greene & Greene’s Gamble House. "On this tour you are invited behind the scenes to visit parts of the House (otherwise unavailable to the public). You walk inside the rooms and, with flashlight in hand, examine at close quarters exquisite craftsman details. You have time to appreciate the ambience of this National Historic Landmark.” The experienced and passionate docent will share excitement and knowledge as we explore details of the architecture not normally seen from a distance.  We will enjoy box lunches on the patio, followed by a 1 ¼ hours guided walk with a Gamble House docent through the historic Arroyo Terrace neighborhood. This National Register historic district has nine Greene & Greene houses as well as the works of other noted architects such as Myron Hunt, Edwin Bergstrom, Elmer Grey, and D. M. Renton. Among these are the personal residences of Myron Hunt and of Charles Greene. The tour will also stop to admire the elegant gates of Westmoreland Place. The walking tour will proceed rain or shine.  The bus will pick up the group at 3:00 at the Gamble House, make a stop to pick up the Jet Propulsion Laboratory Tour and return to the Sheraton Hotel at 4:00.
