Doc Brown’s Back to the Future House

Vehicle provided on behalf of Kia

Back to the Future is one of my favorite movies EVER!!! I have watched the series more times than I can count. When I heard that the house of Doc Brown was in Pasadena and we were there, I knew I had to go. I asked my mom if we could go and she said, of course!!!

When we pulled up in front of the house, I practically screamed with the excitement of seeing the house from my favorite movie. When we first arrived, I sat on the edge of our Kia Sorento looking at the house because I thought it was so cool. Once we found a parking spot, we got out of our Kia Sorento and went to the front porch. We choose just to walk around the outside, but if you would like to go inside, they hold tours at the house.

The house was originally built for David and Mary Gamble and was used by their children after that. In 1977 the house was proclaimed a National Historic Landmark. Later the house was used for the movie Back to the Future as Doc Brown’s Mansion.

As we walked around the house, we stopped for some awesome photo ops and admired all of the amazing architecture. My younger brother and I took turns pointing out what parts of the house we recognized from the movie.

Don’t miss out on this iconic film spot. We spent about 20 – 30 minutes at the house looking at everything. You can find the house at 4 Westmoreland Place in Pasadena. You can get out and just take a couple of photos, or you can spend more time here and take a tour to go inside.
