Garfield Heights is located one mile north of the I-210 (Foothill) Freeway, north of Mountain Street between Los Robles and Marengo Avenues. The neighborhood traces its history to 1881, when two Iowa farmers purchased raw acreage in what is now Garfield Heights. The neighborhood began to take shape by 1893, and the district joined Pasadena in 1904. Many of the area’s homes, built between 1890 and 1920, exude the sense of grace that permeates the district today.
