In Person Event - "Exploring Pasadena - The Original Busch Gardens" an illustrated presentation and book signing with historian and author, Michael Logan
Pasadena Museum of History, Pasadena

Anheuser Busch Brewing Association President and “Captain of Industry” Adolphus Busch’s spectacular Busch Gardens in Pasadena captivated visitors from the day it opened to the public in 1906 until the attraction’s closure in 1938. With terraced hillsides, waterfalls and ponds, miles of scenic paths, and enchanting fairytale statuary, the original Busch Gardens was one of Southern California’s first mega-parks and a world-famous tourist attraction. Pasadena Museum of History (PMH) is excited to welcome back author and historian Michael Logan for another fascinating presentation on his wide-ranging research and exploration into Pasadena’s original Busch Gardens. Join Michael as he shares unique stories and images that will transport participants back to the Gardens in all their glory. In 2001, Pasadena residents and historians Michael Logan and the late Gary Cowles teamed up to launch the most comprehensive research ever done on the Gardens. They co-curated a popular exhibit at PMH to celebrate the Garden’s centennial. Now, after an eighteen-year-long journey into the history and lore of this nearly-forgotten treasure, Logan is back once more – this time for an in-person presentation – celebrating the publication of his ground-breaking 200-page book on the topic. The Original Busch Gardens: Adolphus Busch’s Gift to Pasadena, California will be available to purchase at the program. It features interviews with individuals who experienced Busch Gardens firsthand; maps and historic timelines; and images and stories from a wide variety of sources, including the Anheuser Busch archives in St. Louis, the Busch family, and Pasadena Museum of History. $10 Members, $15 Non-Members. Pasadena Museum of History, 470 West Walnut Street, Pasadena 91103. Masks will be required for this program.
