Claborn/Volock House
845 Sylvan Boulevard

old-house-groupThe meeting of Old House Group is the Claborn/ Volock residence built in 1911 and located at 845 Sylvan   Boulevard.  Owned  by Chalmer and Sue McClure, this    promises to be a very informative meeting for those who are interested in hearing about Sue’s restoration work on this property.  Sue feels strongly about the Old House Group members networking for information and resources to keep the old homes of Redlands looking their best.  This home only two blocks from the university was a part of the Lugonia Heights plat and has an enviable location across the street from Sylvan Park.

Only two families occupied the house between 1919 and 2000 at which time the house received a  Heritage Award.  Mr. Claborn was a retired Texas rancher.  His wife’s maiden name was Swogger and she was proud of a citation  given her for helping during an early typhoid epidemic.  She lived in the house until 1942.  Frank and Julia Volock also loved this park side house encouraging their children to play there.  Frank worked as a chef at the popular Phil’s Charcoal Broiler and Julia also worked in various businesses in Redlands.

Join us to see what the McClures have done since the house was last toured in 2013.
