Former Site of Jackie Robinson's Home
Location: 121 Pepper Street, Pasadena, CA
One of the defining individuals of the 20th century, Jackie Robinson broke baseball's color barrier when he signed with the Brooklyn Dodgers in 1947. In 1920, an uncle in Pasadena invited Mollie Robinson and her five children to leave Cairo, Georgia, and come live with him. She packed up Edgar, Frank, Mack, Jackie, and Willa Mae and headed west to this spot, where a four-bedroom cottage once sat. It's a vacant lot today, but no matter. This is where Jackie Robinson grew up. This is sacred ground.
