Bob Siler grew up in Burbank, not far from Universal Studios and Warner Brothers where they made his favorite monster movies.  A long-time fan of Westerns, he still has a hard time believing that the great John Wayne could die.  Bob has created many lists detailing where the famous and infamous lived, are buried, and the cars they drove.  He has recently completed this list of Western Stars homes after many years.  Burbank Bob now resides in Portland, Oregon.

  1. I do believe all of the ideas you have presented to your post. They are really convincing and can certainly work. Still, the posts are too quick for starters. May you please prolong them a little from next time? Thanks for the post.

    Your effort here is great. I think, though, you might want to correct something that is wrong. Since Mr. Wayne is now deceased I don’t think anyone will mind my telling you the truth of what used to be his house in the Pauma Valley Country Club. John Wayne’s house was actually 15158 Pauma Valley Drive, deep inside the Pauma Valley Country Club. The reason I know this is my aunt and uncle built 147 Womsi Road 3 years before Mr. Wayne built his new (second) Pauma Valley house. They visited Mr Wayne at his house several times … along with visits to another well known celebrity, who still lives across the fairway from 147 Womsi Rd. Another interesting fact is that John Wayne was the “original resident” in the area that eventually became known as the Pauma Valley Country Club, but his original house became part of the “Club Buildings Area” and then he built the very luxurious place at 15158 PV Dr. Ownership of most homes in the PVCC is hidden from public view for protection of the residents who are seeking escape from the public eye … many fly in via the private airport inside the Club gourds … there is even a private filling station inside the club so that no one even needs to leave to refuel their cars.
