Something I Never Knew

When I was younger I got to go to California a few times to visit my uncle “L” when he worked, and lived out there.  During a few of our trips we went to Griffith Park, LA Zoo, and even the Los Angeles Live Steamers.  From everything I remember about the Steamers all I can say to this day is that it is an experience that you just can’t forget.  While I am on this… I just found out while doing some research that Walt Disney had a barn that was used for machine work, and it happens to be in the Los Angeles Live Steamers location.  It is currently a museum.  It looks old, and probably well kept, but I can’t stop thinking that it looks like one of those holiday barns that you see in ads.

Here is the Wiki on it…

Walt Disney’s Carolwood Barn is a museum located at the Los Angeles Live Steamers complex in Griffith Park. It is a miniature barn used by Walt Disney as a machine shop while operating his miniature “live steam” Carolwood Pacific Railroad layout in the backyard of his home in Holmby Hills, a district of Los Angeles, California, USA.

The barn is currently open the third Sunday of every month from 11:00 am to 3:00 pm. Admission is free, but donations are welcome. The barn is owned by The Walt Disney Family Foundation and operated by the Carolwood Pacific Historical Society and the Carolwood Foundation.

When you read this site you can think of me like one of those monthly fruit clubs.  I may not have something for you each, and every single time, but once and a while I do have some interesting stuff.

Disney Had Affiliations With Highland Manor Property

While on a tour at the Highland Manor in Apopka we were shown the words that were written when Walt Disney had worked on a project.  The words “Dream Learn Do” appear on a wall.  This had something to do with the Wedding Chapel, and a deal that was working back in the day.

Here are pictures…
