Jackie Robinson’s Childhood Home

Saves: 6
Check-ins: 1
Jackie Robinson lived out his boyhood years in at a clapboard house on this property. The year was 1922 and this was a white neighborhood in Pasadena. The Robinson family had to endure harsh racism and crosses burning on their front lawn. Jackie's home was torn down long after his family moved out in 1946 with the current structure built in 1977. A plaque on the sidewalk in front of the house commemorates the Robinson's family time living here. (Submitted by Aaron B)
