Councilmember Ed P. Reyes on Saturday will celebrate with the Heritage Square Museum in Highland Park their 40th birthday and the unveiling of the long-awaited, newly rebuilt, veranda at the Longfellow-Hastings Octagon Home. The Longfellow-Hastings Octagon Home at Heritage Square Museum, originally built in Pasadena in 1893, had a wrap-around veranda (or porch) that was last seen on the home in 1917. The veranda was removed from the three story octagon house during its move to another location in Pasadena in 1917.

The Longfellow-Hasting Octagon Home is the only known surviving, unaltered example of octagonal architecture in California.

Admission to the event is $10 and is free for museum members.
