Welcome to Sierra Madre
Sierra Madre is located in the Foothills of the San Gabriel Mountains below the southern edge of the Angeles National Forest with the cities of Pasadena and Altadena to the west. According to 2010 Census Bureau estimates, the population of the city is 10,917 and the city encompasses around 3.01 square miles. This small, safe, and friendly city is one of the few cities that have fully been able to retain its village quality.
Sierra Madre is known for its unique culture. Despite how small this city is, Sierra Madre is the home for the world’s largest known Wistaria vine, which measures more than an acre in size and weighing 250 tons. The annual Wistaria festival is a day where the 115 year old vine on private property can be viewed. They also host a locally famous Independence Day parade and three days of festivities each year. Residents like to call it a “Star Spangled Weekend.”
Sierra Madre’s neighborhoods are filled with tree lined streets, beautiful yards and gardens, and traditional architectural styled home. These include Victorian, Californian Bungalow, Mission Revival, and Ranch style homes.
