In the roaring 20's, Oakland experienced a housing boom along with new aspirations for old-world styles. We will visit this European village of "modest mansions," gracefully set around a "castle" in the middle of the city. Now famous for its holiday lighting displays, this collection of unique homes on Picardy Drive was constructed in 1926 to appeal to the changing taste in home styles. Once known as "Normandy Gardens," it remains a lasting testament to the skilled, architect-developer collaboration that culminated in this beautiful community of Period Revival homes. A level walk. Leaders: Andy Carpentier and Kara Nielsen
