Home of the Day: Victorian charm in Pasadena

Home of the Day: Victorian charm in Pasadena
This 1902 Victorian home, with a wood-burning fireplace and original architectural details, is listed for $1.075 million. (Jason Keene)

Built in 1902, this Victorian home in Pasadena was once owned by Ruby McKnight Williams, a legendary activist and former president emeritus of the local NAACP branch.

Scalloped siding and decorative trim lend a time-honored look to the exterior as does a wide wraparound porch. Wide baseboards, wood-paneled doors and windows and hardwood floors continue the vintage feel inside.
