who lived on East Warner

(Florence, Oregon.)

I lived on 225 E. Warner in the mid 1940's to the late 1950's. Looking for names of people who lived there. Also trying to find information where Hobo Jungle was near the fairgrounds, the location of a gun emplacement above the city and where Skateland was located.

Skateland & Hobo Jungle
by: Anonymous

Skateland was on Telegraph Road where Santinos' Pizza is now.
Hobo Jungle was in the River Bottom adjacent to the horse stalls at the Fairgrounds.

Hobo Jungle
by: Big Bud

Hobo Jungle was located on the north side of the Ventura River by the railroad bridge. There was also an old gun implacement close to the mouth of the river on the same side. We use to go across the railroad bridge to get there. Made for some pretty exciting time, trying to make it across before the next train came by. This took place in the 1970's

Hobo Jungle NEW
by: Anonymous

In the late 1960s my friends and I would walk across the railroad bridge to get to hobo jungle. While out there we would build rafts out of driftwood and float them in the estuary at the end of the river.

hobo jungle and skateland NEW
by: Anonymous

Seems like I am talking to some young people. Hobo Jungle in the 50's was in a grove of bamboo near the rail tracks and near the Fairgrounds. Skateland
was in the old bathhouse at the end of California Street.
If anyone has info or photos send them to me at:

Location of Hobo Jungle in the 40's and 50's NEW
by: Russell

Hobo Jungle was located between the railroad tracks and the beach on the north side of the fairgrounds between the fairgrounds and the Ventura River. It was overgrown land with old Palm trees, wild Bamboo and coastal brush and bushes. The trains ran slow as they were leaving and entering Ventura, which allowed the Hobo's to get on and off the trains at this location and make camps in this overgrown area. Hence the name Hobo Jungle. As a kid, I and my parents and friends would ride our horses from Casitas Springs along the Ventura River, through the Shell Oil fields, across the railroad tracks, through Hobo Jungle and to the ocean. There was a narrow trail through Hobo Jungle, it was thick with brush and dark and shaded by the big old Palm trees. We could see the Hobo camps scatted about in the thick brush and bushes. They would watch us pass through on our horses. After riding our horses on the beach and in the surf we would return to Casitas. As the Ventura Freeway was being constructed, this ride became unpleasant and stressful for horses and riders so our Saddle Club ended this ride.
