A historic building with old world charm that inspires the imagination......

The George H. Maxwell Hosue was built in 1929 as teh the summer bungalow adjacent to the Vista Del Arroyo Hotel, a luxurious resort that flourished during the early 20th century. The Depression, war and neglect led to the abandonment of this landmark Pasadena home until it was reborn as a valuable center for community activities.
Today it is the headquarters for the Western Justice Center Foundation and is alive with activity offering a completely enchanting wedding location in the leafy enclave once know as "Millionaire's Row," Read less

Absolutely loved this place from the moment we stepped on the grounds for our first look. Both my husband and I knew it would provide the exact ambiance we wanted. A beautiful house with history to go along with it! The reception room ONLY seats 100...be prepared for that!! We thought maybe we could squeeze an extra table but no way! The area is beautiful and the pictures that follow are also incredible. Camille and Clifton were both a great help making our wedding day PERFECT!

Everything was beautiful at the site, and it was $2600 for the entire day (11am-11pm), which was awesome. They also let you bring your own caterer and alcohol, which saves a TON of money. I was able to have my dream wedding for under $15,000 thanks to the affordability of this site, and I was able to play with a cool vintage theme because the house was built in the twenties. We got married outside on the patio and had the reception inside. They also let us host the rehearsal dinner there as part of the $2600. We looked at a LOT of affordable venues and it was the best we found. But be warned - you can't fit over 100 people!

The Maxwell House is an absolutely beautiful venue in an amazing neighborhood. I did have a few issues with the site though..........for one there is a lot of dust and dirt in some spaces. The rug in the main conference room (which you are not allowed to move) had a huge stain on it which was not noticed until the day before my wedding. When I initially went to see the venue there was no furniture on the back patio and again the day before the wedding noticed a large unsightly patio table with chairs which all happen to be chained down. There is a large wire hanging down on the porch from what looks like use to be a lamp and is unsightly in pictures. Overall the venue is great but feel the property should be pristine as it is rented for events and they have a full time property manager.
