Grandma’s House – The Elder House
The building that was Grandma’s House was built in 1884 by Elmore Shipley. It was originally between Vine and Orange Streets on East Mission and was later moved to the corner of Elder St. and Main Ave. by Victor Westfall. According to a story recorded by Maie Ellis, of the early Ellis Hotel family and also published in the Village News on November 5, 1998, the home was part of a good-hearted building contest between three friends who wanted to see which of them could build the best and most attractive home for no more than $3,000.
The Elder House, as it is known today, is one of the oldest buildings in town and it has been a family home, a rental property, housed two schools, a popular restaurant called Grandma’s House as featured on the poster, and is currently home of the Village News newspaper.

In the sixties, Jim started surfing the Southern California beaches and playing guitar in a local-garage band. In 1965 he began studying art at the prestigious Chouinard Art Institute in Los Angeles. In 1969, after receiving his bachelor degree in illustration, Jim launched an extensive 20 plus year career as an American Illustrator. He has received numerous awards in the field of advertising.
In 1990 Jim returned to his love of the ocean and surfing and started painting pictures of the local beaches and surf culture. Many of these art pieces include classic Woodie cars. Local car clubs took notice of his work and started searching him out to paint poster art for their events. Art for the Huntington -Beach Cruiser, Doheny Wood and Fallbrook Vintage Car Club posters have’ become highly collectible pieces.
Jim’s detailed pen & ink and watercolor renderings present a wealth of good memories and souvenirs of places seen and loved by locals and tourists alike.
When Jim is not painting he can be found surfing at his favorite spot in San Onofre.
