Olinda Oil Museum & Trail
Currently this park, located off of Santa Fe Road in the Olinda Ranch neighborhood, features the original Olinda Oil Well Number One, the former field office building, a jackline pump, records vault, and assorted antique oil operation tools. The park also serves as entry point for a loop trail open to the public.
Celebrating 100 Years
A centennial celebration was held on October 6, 2012, at the Olinda Oil Museum and Trail to mark the 100-year anniversary of the Field House. Once the office and headquarters of the bustling Olinda oil operation, the Field House is now filled with artifacts, along with the original safe and warehouse where parts were once stored and organized.
The Field House is the centerpiece of the 12-acre Olinda Oil Museum and Trail, a historic park that recapture the sights, sounds, smells, and the vital role Olinda played in the development of Brea.
