ABOUT THE MUIRLANDS NEIGHBORHOOD:
- In the 1920s, developer Harold James Muir purchased two hundred and fifty seven acres of Soledad Mountain looking seaward and he started making plans to create a prestigious subdivision. Building began in 1926 and Muir hired architect, Edgar V. Ullrich to design his own home as well as lay out the exclusive subdivision. Muirlands Drive was established to provide the first automobile access to the steep hillside subdivision and it is where many of the Muirlands first homes were built. In the 1920s, the land was brown and barren or covered with low-lying chaparral, which is a far cry from the forest-like landscape of towering pines and eucalyptus trees that we see in the neighborhood today.
- As with other subdivisions that began in the later part of the 1920s, development in the Muirlands was seriously curtailed with the Great Depression. Much of the lower portion of the Muirlands was developed later in the 1950s and most of the homes were designed in the California Ranch style. Bearing no relation to the naturalist, John Muir for who Muir Woods in Northern California is named, Harold James Muir was however, something of a Southern California naturalist. He believed landscape shared importance with architecture, something his architect, Edgar Ullrich believed too. Muir kept the size of his lots large, assuring that each home would be surrounded by beautiful gardens. Old-growth landscape and gardens still flourish in the old Muirlands today just as Muir envisioned.
