Oakridge Front Entrance
The Historic Oakridge Estate
Third Saturday Tour
Hurry! Spaces are still available for the final 2017 tour!
Saturday December 16 10 a.m.
Please join Friends of Oakridge docents for a 90-minute tour of the English Tudor style home constructed for Barbara Stanwyck in 1937 by “Architect to the Stars” Paul Revere Williams. Re-visit Hollywood’s glamorous “Golden Era” when stars and entertainment industry moguls alike escaped to the San Fernando Valley to “toil” as genteel farmers with acres of land dedicated to citrus and walnut groves, swimming pools and horses!
In addition to the history of
the Oakridge residence and its subsequent owners, Jack and
Victoria Oakie, tour guests will learn the exciting stories of
Marwyck Ranch and Northridge Farms – the finest Thoroughbred
breeding operation West of the Mississippi.
A New Park in Northridge
Oakridge Estate Park construction started in November 2017. The contractor for the park project is digging and moving dirt! Please follow along with us as we document the progress of the new, passive recreation park via images and information. The entrance and parking area is graded with walking trails to soon be added. Landscaping will follow. Please watch with us as the new park appears!
