According to the newsletter of the Monrovia Historic Preservation Group, the city's Gold Line station will feature reproductions of Ernest Batchelder tiles. Batchelder lived in Pasadena early in the 20th century and his tiles were part of the Craftsman movement. Artist Cha-Rie Tang is making the reproduction tiles herself, and some of them use designs copied from Batchelder tiles in Monrovia homes.
