Our History

A Political Seed Was Planted Among the Orange Trees...

The Pasadena Republican Club was founded on March 29, 1884, and its membership included every Republican in the thriving ten year old village of some two hundred families settled among acres of orange groves.  This was four years after Republican Rutherford B. Hayes, the first president of the United States ever set foot in Pasadena.
