Lower Hastings Ranch was developed before Upper Hastings Ranch and it is a separate and distinct neighborhood. The lots were larger and the homes were custom and semi custom built as opposed to the more development-like Upper Hastings Ranch neighborhood.
Some history on the area from the Hastings Ranch Association:
In 1882, Charles Cook Hastings purchased 1,100 acres of land between Pasadena and Sierra Madre for $7 per acre. He named his ranch “Mesa Alta Rancho” and planted 300 acres with grape vines and constructed a mansion. Soon after he died, his son, Charles Houston Hastings, assumed responsibility for the land. He imported unusual specimens of plants and trees and populated the ranch with peacocks, pheasants, cats, dogs (32 collies) and champion horses. In 1928, the Hastings mansion caught fire and burned to the ground. The ranch fell into a state of disrepair and its operation was left to managers.
Following the death of Charles Houston Hastings in 1942, the ranch was sold by the Hastings Foundation to a syndicate for over $1 million. The land was subdivided into luxury housing tracts. In the late 1940s, about 600 homes were built in the lower Hastings tract; in the early 1950s, 800 houses were constructed by Coronet Homes, Inc.; and in the early 1960s, the upper portion of the ranch was developed
