THE LONG HALL

Drawing by Chris Jones

The Long Hall was a real center of community on The Land. From potlucks to meetings to Sunday morning breakfast to dances it brought us together.

The Long Hall had originally been constructed by one Louis O'Neal, who was the owner of 32100 Page Mill from the turn of the century until his death in 1942. O'Neal was a leader in the Republican party, and designed the building for rural caucuses and rallies. Legend had it that several California governors were first anointed there. Those of The Land used it as a general catchall gathering place. Breakfast was served regularly every morning to the 35 or so people who had to drive down the hill to work. On Sunday mornings, folks came for breakfast from up and down Page Mill Road and also from The Land. The institution of the Sunday breakfasts proved to be the final step in merging the groups on The Land into a single entity.
