The Altadena Guild of Huntington Memorial Hospital will host its 61st Annual Home Tour on Sunday as part of an annual charity benefit to the Pasadena hospital.
The walking tour will feature four Altadena homes near the intersection of Midlothian Drive and Midwick Drive, according to a press release sent out by the group. Two of the homes were built in 1930. Pictures and descriptions of the homes, courtesy of the Altadena Guild, can be viewed at right.

The residents of these lovely homes, which include a Monterey Colonial, a Monterey Spanish Revival by architect Wallace Neff, a Georgian Colonial Revival and a single story Contemporary, graciously agreed to open their homes for the Guild’s annual fund raiser.
