Story

Built in 1900, The Lassie House is a Historic Landmark and is one of the largest & most beautiful homes in Pomona, California and can uniquely host weddings, corporate events and family vacations.  It was also the childhood home of Jon Provost, famously known as “Timmy”, from the Television Series Lassie!

In 1927, the home was relocated from near Garey Avenue and Holt Boulevard in Pomona to its present location.  The house was moved on rollers pulled along by a team of mules. Jon Provost, aka Timmy, lived here from 1955 to 1960 with his parents, brother and sister.  It was during this time that he would commute to Hollywood acting in his starring role in Lassie.  While Jon lived here, he had horses, goats, chickens and even the baby puppy of the original Lassie.

The house is over 7,000 square feet and has eight bathrooms and eight bedrooms on half an acre.  Ray and Michelle Adamyk, the current owners, purchased the home in 2017 and extensively restored it to its original grandeur.  The original horse carriage, has been turned into a bathhouse with two restrooms.  Behind the bathhouse are lockers and hot showers. In the back restroom of the bathhouse is a reminder of Jon’s collie dog chewing on the door frame.

In the bathroom upstairs next to Jon’s childhood bedroom, was uncovered original wallpaper of children playing cowboys and Indians.

Also, the famous Lassie Well in front of the house, built on the spot where there was an existing well, coming down from Mt Baldy, to water the orange groves.

You will also see a bronze status of Lassie and a plaque commemorating the dedication of the home as a historic landmark.

As well, remnants of the well have been preserved and are located in the front of the house and used as planters.

The Great Room, mural below was designed by Mr. Adamyk, President of Spectra Company, one of the largest preservation company in the United States.  Muralists from the United States, Canada and France were commissioned for the work “In the Pond” depicting morning and evening of the first day.
