All About Altadena, CA

Altadena, CA is a census-designated, unincorporated place in Los Angeles County. It is located about 14-miles from downtown Los Angeles and is directly north of Pasadena. This part of town was started in the mid-1860s by Benjamin Eaton. He was looking for water sources for his construction business and found this area - instead of using it for that, he wanted to help renovate the land and turn it into expensive real estate. Unfortunately for him, his plan failed because the mountains made the land inaccessible. He eventually brokered a deal years later but the land wasn’t developed for about a decade after that. Instead, it was used for agricultural reasons. Eventually, Hohn and Fred Woodbury, brothers, launched the subdivision of Altadena in 1887. They build a small community with mansions along what is today Mariposa Street, and a small community continued to develop over the next 100 years. Today, most people who live in Altadena are families with younger children who want to grow up in an area with many amenities, but still has a community feel to it. In particular, people enjoy going to Christmas Tree Lane, which is the largest Christmas lighting venue in the world. It brings in thousands of people each year.  Of course, there are many hiking trails, natural beauties, a botanical garden, and even biking trails for community members and many from just outside Altadena.
