 Fuller Theological Seminary Pasadena

What is now the Fuller Theological Seminary began its existence in 1900 as a gracious neighborhood of luxurious homes just two blocks from the Pasadena City Hall.  Developed by Todd Ford, Sr., it was known as Ford Place and became one of the most highly desirable residential neighborhoods in the city. 

By 1971 the Fuller Theological Seminary owned the Ford Place properties and closed off Oakland Street to form a beautiful palm tree lined mall at the heart of this academic oasis.

Fuller Seminary Building Almost all of the original homes in Ford Place have been maintained by Fuller.  The architectural styles range from Tudor to Prairie to quasi-Italianate.  Today these buildings are home to offices and classrooms for the seminary.


David Hubbard Library Fuller Seminary On the south end of the two-block-long campus a new building has been constructed--the David Hubbard Library.  While it stands in contrast to the old homes-now-classrooms at the seminary, the library is directly across the street from the very contemporary Pasadena Museum of California Art.
