Victoria, an OCThen reader, wants to ask others if they know anything about Murray Manor Shopping Center, which I believe was in Garden Grove...
My dad, Harold Murray Jr. owned Murray Manor Shopping Center back in the 60's (1965-1969), it was located at 911 N. Brookhurst. We lived in a house located on the parking lot behind the furniture store. The furniture store there was a very large spanish style house. I have information that it was also an orphanage at one time as well as a Governers mansion. The house that we used as a furniture store was once called the Stanton House, after Phillip Ackely Stanton. I am looking for anyone who shopped there, new my family or knows any more info on the house itself. I am gathering all the info to pass to my children.
Thanks, Victoria firstname.lastname@example.org
I did find a couple of anonymous comments that mention Murray Manor...
Great site! I have had a ball looking at Knott's, D-land, Deer Farm, etc., and just saw "Murray Manor" mentioned two posts ago, where I remember being a bored kid dragged around by my parents.
Murray Manor mentioned here twice - wow, that's a real trip. Twas really boring for the kids, but what a grand place it was. I don't remember if we ever bought anything from there, but we did visit 3 or 4 times.If anyone has some information about this building, please click on "Post a Comment" below and share it with us.
