I understand President Reagan owned 3 ranches throughout his life. The first was located somewhere in Northridge, CA. The second was in the Malibu Mountains near Malibu Lake, CA, was 350-360 acres and was donated by Reagan to the Parks Department and is now part of the Malibu Creek State Park. The third was of course Rancho del Cielo.

I've been unable to find out anything about his first ranch in Northridge. Can anyone give me more information on this ranch? Where specifically was it? How many acres? What has become of this ranch? Etc.

Thanks for your help,

About 2 or 3 months before they got married, Ronald and Nancy started staying at Rancho Del Cielo on a part time basis. Before their marriage, they all ready had some clothes, kitchen ware,some decorations and had started fixing up the ranch- a little.They slept separtly,
one on the sofa and one on the bed(trading sometimes) before they got married.

The St. Cloud reference is the last residence where President Reagan and Mrs.Reagan spent the last years together?
During the week of ceremonies I remember someone stating that their residence was approximately a one hour drive from the Reagan Library. Is that correct?
I am not familiar with California.
Time Line information was great. Thank you !
