Spend Your Summer at Hueneme


Sometime in the early 1900's, my grandfather leased a plot of land from the Berylwood Investment Company at the beach near the foot of Ventura Street in Port Hueneme.  There he established a resort which he called the Hueneme Beach Resort.  The following is a brochure dated 1908 advertising the resort.

In about 1925, he sold his resort to Henry Horsewood, and the resort became known as Horsewoods.

The following photo is of the resort in 1925 after it was named Horsewoods.
The railroad tracks were used to haul material back and forth to the beach
