Description

Please note that the content of this book primarily consists of articles available from Wikipedia or other free sources online. The Canfield-Wright House, known alternatively as Wrightland and The Pink Lady, is a historic structure in Del Mar, California. The private home was placed on the National Register of Historic Places on May 14, 2004. The house was built in 1910 for Charles A. Canfield. Canfield, alongside business partner Edward L. Doheny, became an oil tycoon after drilling the first successful oil well in Los Angeles in 1892. The two would go on to also drill the first oil well in Mexico, using the resulting asphalt to pave Mexican roads and standing as a precursor to Pemex.show more
