The Oakridge Virtual Tour

What prompted one of the most celebrated actresses of her day to join forces with a group of friends to design and build a residence on a ranch miles away from Hollywood in the remote San Fernando Valley town now known as Northridge, California?
And, after all that expense and effort, why would she sell it after only a few years to an actor whose widow would tenaciously guard the property for the next 60 years?
Friends of Oakridge invites you to join us for “The Oakridge Story”, an overview of the history of the Oakridge Estate from its inception in 1936, as Barbara Stanwyck’s Marwyck Ranch, to its present status as City of Los Angeles Historic-Cultural Monument #484.
This narrated presentation will be told through the use of archival photographs, aerial images and vintage maps, as well as newspaper clippings, brochures, advertisements and magazine covers from the period. Following our virtual historic journey, including a “sneak peek” at the current conditions of the home and grounds, a panel of Oakridge docents will be on hand to answer your questions about the rich history of the property and ongoing efforts to rehabilitate the residence and surrounding landscape.
We look forward to seeing you, virtually!
