About the Friends of the Castle Green
The Friends of the Castle Green was formed in 1993 as a support group for the historic Castle Green built in 1898 and designed by the noted architect Frederick Louis Roehrig as the first annex to the very successful Green Hotel which had been built on the opposite side of Raymond Avenue. The purpose of the Friends was to raise funds for historic restoration to the standards of the Secretary of Interior and to raise awareness of the significance and beauty of this important building in the history of Pasadena. Over the years, mostly through public tours of the building, the Friends of the Castle Green have completed many projects on the building. Currently we are working on having the shades for the lanterns on the veranda and the sunroom reproduced by the Seattle glass artist Janusz Pozniak. Earlier the Friends had the metal lanterns reproduced by local metal artisan Rinauldo’s Reproduction. Please explore many other projects on our projects page.
