Less than two miles away from our studios is a National Historic Landmark known as the Gamble House.

It's considered a masterpiece of the American arts and crafts movement designed by legendary architects Charles Sumner Greene and his brother, Henry Mather Greene in 1908.

Fifty eight years later, the Gamble family turned the house over to USC and the city of Pasadena.

And recently the Gamble House celebrated its 50th anniversary as one of the most unique museums in California

Take Two took a tour with Dyke Messler, one of the few remaining relatives of the Gamble family. Ted Bosley, the Gamble House Director, spoke to us about the house's history.
