At Home Series logo

At Home Series logoThe Nuccio family are premiere growers of camellias and azaleas in Southern California. Nuccio Nurseries has sold over 600 varieties to the trade and the public since brothers Joe and Julius Nuccio began the horticultural business in 1935. Second generation Tom Nuccio will share his family’s stories, the process of cultivating new varieties, and the changes he’s seen in the business through the years. The 1901 Cudahy Craftsman is touted as the Grandest Bungalow in all of Southern California. Edna and John “Jack” P. Cudahy, the son of the millionaire meat-packer, Michael Cudahy, engaged architect Charles W. Buchanan to build their 11,000 square foot home in Pasadena when they moved from Kansas City at the turn of the century. The former Pasadena Showcase House of Design will be opened for this lecture.

Program begins at 6:00 pm. All At Home programs take place at least in part outdoors. In case of rain, please consider your reservation a donation. Please note At Home events include walking and steps. Please no high heels.
