Oakland, California Historical Landmarks : Oakland, California: History of the Pardee Home
October 1, 2019
This beautiful historic home has been the
home of one family, dating back to the eighteen sixties. That’s the George Pardee family.
And George Pardee was governor of California in the early nineteen hundreds. Later on,
after his death, two of his daughters Helen and Madeline Pardee, continued to live here
up until the nineteen eighties. And the ladies never married, they lived here all their lives.
And when they made their will out, they decided they wanted this home to be open for the public
for tours and museum activities. So a non-profit organization is operating it now. And it’s
a place to come and visit and learn about early California life and the life and times
of the Pardee family.
