Pardee Home Historical Museum

The Pardee Home, including its carriage house and water tower, is a centerpiece of Oakland’s Preservation Park Historic District, within a short walking distance of such downtown landmarks as Old Oakland, City Hall, and Preservation Park.

Our mission is to preserve and interpret the historic 1868 Italianate villa Pardee residence, including its gardens and collections for the education and enjoyment of the citizens of Oakland and the greater Bay Area, and for visitors from throughout the nation and world.
