SAN FERNANDO VALLEY TREASURE EMERGES IN NORTHRIDGE

2010 THE YEAR OF VALLEY ADVENTURES Northridge100

After years of neglect, the great old Oakridge Manor had its first public preview this last Saturday.
Still in an exceptionally fragile state, Oakridge Manor's living room still houses impressive murals, done by as yet an unknown artist. With a naive innocence, the murals represent a bygone era in decoration.
That the murals were considered, even in their time, as decoration rather than fine art, is exemplified by a light switch placed directly in the center of a mural near the garden door.
For more information about the historic Oakridge Estate, please call the office of Los Angeles City Council District 12 at 1 (818) 756-8501
