From the visitors guide: "The David B. Gamble house (1907-1909), is an internationally recognized masterpiece of the turn-of-the-century Arts and Crafts movement in America. Built for David and Mary Gamble of the Procter and Gamble Company, the house is the most complete and original example of the work of architects Charles Sumner Greene and Henry Mather Greene, brothers whose work made a profound impact on the development of 20th century American architecture."

The Huntington.
Hearing that we had planned a trip to southern California in 2010, a good friend recommended we take some time to check out the Huntington. What a wonderful day we spent there, made all the better by an impressive collection of Greene & Greene furniture and lighting. Art collections and superb botanical gardens are also part of the Huntington.
