Linda Vista is one of Pasadena’s wealthiest neighborhoods, and its largest by area. It is a quiet, tree-lined, hillside community with a public library, fire station, park, private children’s center, and the Art Center College of Design that represent its public buildings. The neighborhood includes approximately 1,350 homes. When Pasadena annexed the region in 1914, Linda Vista was a conservative rural hamlet, largely cut off from the city around it. Children under 18 needed a signed permit to stay out past 9 p.m. Residents’ main priority was the construction of an easy route south to Colorado Boulevard, which was finally built a decade later. By 1950, Linda Vista had become more developed but remained peaceful, removed but not isolated. It still is today. Linda Vista’s all-American look and strong sense of community, unchanged for decades, remind many residents of the era in which they grew up.
