The Downtown Model is a work in progress overseen by Master Modeler Bruce Hendrick. Bruce has hand crafted many of the buildings that help tell the story of Brea's early history. The video was filmed by Nemo Luong, a film extraordinaire from Brea Olinda High School. This short video will give you a peak at the exhibit but to get the full experience, please visit us at the Museum. We're located at 495 S. Brea Blvd. in City Hall Park!

Im not seeing answers to any of these posts ?
Found from a friend. Class of 36
Does anyone remember or have info on the big house that used to be on the corner of Imperial and Berry? It might have been an old ranch house? I would love any information that anyone can share as I can't seem to find anything via google! We used to drive by it constantly growing up and am just curious :-)
If you live in Brea, this is a great inexpensive gift for yourself and friends. Holidays coming up.
I thought the Historical Society might enjoy this photo! :) It's my Dad and I at the All-Class reunion at Brea-Olinda High School in the late 80's (I think 1988?) shortly before the school was demolished. My Dad was Craig Lilley and his younger brothers were Roger, Keith and Bruce - all were BOHS Alumni too.
