Sierra Madre was named an "All American City" in 2007. This designation confirmed what its 11,000+ residents already know: Sierra Madre feels like a small town even though it's located within minutes of a big city. As with many other Foothill cities, Sierra Madre was founded in the late 1800s. The hilly property where the town is located was purchased from Lucky Baldwin, a man who made his fortune with the Comstock Mine.
The annual Wistaria Festival draws visitors from around the world and celebrates the famous Wisteria Vine, a 115-year old wonder certified for many years by the Guinness Book of World Records as the world's largest blossoming plant. The city's quaint downtown offers a wide array of restaurants and shops. Its housing stock ranges from architectural treasures listed on the Register of Historic Places to new construction. With that said, over 40 percent of the town's homes are over 50 years old.
