Historic Chapel of the Chimes was designed by the great California architect, Julia Morgan, in 1928 as an addition to…More the existing Oakland Memorial Columbarium. The building is considered one of the great examples of funerary architecture in the United States as well as one of the great examples of Bay Area architecture.
The facility has two on-site chapels, a columbarium, a crematory, and offers in-ground placement as well as scattering options.
Located across the street from the Chapel of the Chimes, Cougar Horse is the brainchild of brother-and-sister Oakland…More natives Reed and Dana Olsen. The shop showcases their hand-dyed T-shirts, tank tops, accessories, and assorted vintage items. The clothes are all locally manufactured. The store is decorated with antique eclectic prints, paintings, and watercolors and reinforces the notion that everything old is new again....at some point.
