On Saturday, October 27th, The Men’s Club visited what is now known as Oakridge Estates. Some 80 years ago Barbara Stanwyck purchased a piece of property in the San Fernando Valley. The property bordered on the north by Devonshire Blvd, on the east by Reseda Blvd, on the south by what is now Lassen, and on the west by what is now Wilbur. On this property Ms. Stanwyck and Zeppo Marx, her agent and one of the Marx Brothers, built separate homes. Additionally, a thoroughbred training track and ranch were added. During this time period, Barbara and Zeppo called this the Marwych Ranch.more»
On Saturday, February 17, 2018, The Men’s Club visited the Santa Susan Depot Museum and Model Railroad display in Simi Valley. Our docent, Curt, was very outgoing and added so much to the tour. We were limited in time to two hours, but, I’m sure Curt could have gone all-day with the history and stories about the depot.more»
