California Historical Landmarks In Oakland

Landmark # 1027 - Pardee Home

Description: The house was built in 1868-69 by Enoch Pardee, a Gold Rush immigrant to California from the Midwest, who later established a practice as an eye doctor in San Francisco. The death of his wife Mary, a year after their new Oakland home was completed, did not stop Enoch from pursuing a vigorous public career in the East Bay during the 1870s, including terms as Mayor of Oakland, State Assemblyman, and State Senator. Enoch and Mary's only child, George C. Pardee, followed ever so closely in his father's footsteps, also becoming an eye doctor and joining his father's practice and likewise serving on the city council and public health commission before being elected Mayor of Oakland in 1893 and finally Governor of California in 1902. .

Location: 672 11th St, Oakland
