Dinsmoor Heritage House Christmas Open House “An Old Fashioned Christmas”

On December 3, 2011, the Dinsmoor Heritage House and friends celebrated the Holidays with their Annual Holiday Christmas Celebration and Open House.  The historic Dinsmoor is located at 9632 Steele Street, on the corner of Temple City Blvd and Steele in “the mead”. The house was built in 1927 and is now one of the oldest houses in Rosemead.

The Dinsmoor had been beautifully decorated for the Holidays inside and out.  Inside a beautiful tree, garland tied with bows strung through the banisters, holiday decorations placed all through the house, and the dining room table was filled with Christmas goodies, fudge and cakes, cookies and candies, all prepared by members of the society for their guests. Outside, the grounds had been neatly groomed and the house looked great with the all the new cosmetic repairs.

The whole community was invited for a wonderful afternoon of music, holiday goodies and gift raffles. Visitors were all so amazed at the huge historical house.  Many of them had never seen the house or even been inside, even the neighbors who have lived near the house for many years.  Tours were conducted once an hour, and attendees got to see parts of the house, some people have never seen.

We also were very lucky to have Coach Chuck Lyons and the Rosemead High School Girls Basketball Team, who volunteered to help with the event.  The girls were very in awe of the house.  Most of them took the tour several times.  They were told stories of what it was like when the Dinsmoor family lived in the house and how much different it was then.

It was a great day!
