The Ojai Valley Museum
When people visit the Ojai Valley they want to know what makes it special. The Ojai Valley Museum helps them understand what a unique place this is by sharing the history, art and culture of the valley. Both visitors and residents learn about local stories, people, places and events. ​ Founded in 1966, the Ojai Valley Museum is a non-profit, 501(c)(3) organization. We collect and exhibit art, artifacts, photographs and paper ephemera relating to the history, art and culture of the Ojai Valley. We operate a museum, research library and visitors center. The museum moved into the former St. Thomas Aquinas Catholic Church in 1996. This is the museum's third location. The original church burned in 1917 and was rebuilt by architects Mead and Requa in the Mission Revival style. Edward Drummond Libbey considered the structure the "crowning achievement" of his beautification project in Ojai. The building, which is owned by the City of Ojai, was listed on the National Register of Historic Places in 1995.

Ojai Valley Tennis Tournament
The history of The Ojai really dates back to 1887 when Sherman Day Thacher came to Ojai to become a farmer and grow citrus. After building his stone house on 160 acres of land in the East End of the valley, he soon learned that he would require some financial assistance to survive, and so started tutoring students on the ranch, then called Casa de Piedra. Brother William Thacher, the New England and intercollegiate tennis doubles champion while a junior at Yale University in 1886, came to the valley in 1890 for a family wedding, and stayed on to help with the school. In 1892, the first tennis court in the Valley was built on the school grounds. The first tennis tournament in Ojai was held on that court in 1893. As part of his involvement with Valley and the town, then Nordhoff, Sherman Thacher helped found the Ojai Athletic Club in 1894; and the next year, William Thacher decided to form a club devoted to tennis, and so the Ojai Valley Tennis Club was born. The club quickly began to sponsor competition, and in 1896, the Ojai Valley Tennis Club absorbed the Athletic Club with William Thacher as President. Competition in earnest started in 1896 with a challenge to the Ventura Tennis Club, a popular valley wide event. The following year, the Ojai Tennis Club sponsored inter-county competition, teaming with Ventura to challenge Santa Barbara; and later combined forces with Ventura and Santa Barbara to challenge Los Angeles and Pasadena.

Deer Lodge
Over the years, people have been called to Ojai for a variety of reasons. Some came seeking peace or prosperity, soaking in the mineral rich natural hot springs or mining for gold in the hills. Others came to Ojai in search of a mystical utopia, through its association with the Theosophical society, its native Chumash lore or inspired by its depiction as the fabled Shangri-La in the film Lost Horizon. As the oldest restaurant and tavern in Ojai, the Deer Lodge has long served as a meeting place where weary adventurers from all walks of life come together to fill their bellies and lift their spirits. Today, we are proud to be the newest caretakers of this home away from home for both locals and travelers alike. And even though times have changed, the spirit has stayed the same. There’s a little somethin’ for everyone here at the Deer Lodge. In keeping with our backwoods heritage, we offer classic Californian cuisine, along with a wide selection of craft beers and spirits from up and down the West Coast. We have vegetarian and vegan friendly options, as well as a large dog-friendly patio and a game room with a pool table and lounge area. With live music and smokey barbecue on the weekends, this is a place where you can bring the whole family during the day, or dance with your friends into the night. This is where memories are made, where the blacktop ends and paradise begins… this is where time stands still.
