Notes
Survey number HABS CA-1899
Building/structure dates: 1868 initial construction
Significance: Built by a pioneer Californian, Dr. Enoch Homer Pardee. It was occupied later by his son, Dr. George Cooper Pardee. Both men were physicians who had a strong interest in politics. Each served the City of Oakland as Mayor, and George C. Pardee was Governor of California (1903-1907). With their wives and families, the Drs. Pardee made the 11th Street house into an important social center of the East Bay and California. Constructed soon after the earthquake of 1868, the residence is a notable three story example of Italianate architecture. Occupying almost a half city block and set amidst handsomely planted grounds with period garage house at the rear; this is one of the few later 19th century private dwellings still standing in central Oakland. The Ms. Helen and Madeline Pardee, daughters of Dr. George C. Pardee, maintain the building and grounds in immaculate order.
