What is Ojai, California known for?


school played

, but it appears that it was one of two prep schools attended by Howard Hughes which just barely meets my threshold for a redirect entry. I've seen no evidence yet that the school played any particularly important role in Hughes' life, and the Howard Hughes article doesn't mention it. See Talk:The_Thacher_School for an extract from the New York Times obit. And Ojai seems to be a moderately notable place with an existing article that is not bad but could use work.

athletic field

school in Ojai is still named Nordhoff High School. The public junior high school, named "Matilija", formerly served as Nordhoff Union High School and still features large tiles with the initials "NUHS" on the steps of the athletic field. Libbey The main turning point in the development of the city was the coming of Edward Libbey, early owner of the Libbey Glass Company. He saw the valley and fell in love, thinking up many plans for expansion and beautification of the existing rustic town. A fire destroyed much of the original western-style downtown Nordhoff—Ojai in 1917. Afterwards Libbey helped design, finance, and build a new downtown more in line with the then contemporary taste for Spanish Colonial Revival style architecture (Spanish Colonial Revival architecture). The projects included a Spanish-style arcade along the main street, a bell-tower reminiscent of the famous campanile of the Basilica Menor de San Francisco de Asis in Havana, and a pergola opposite the arcade. To thank Libbey for his gifts to the town, the citizens proposed a celebration to take place on March 2 of each year. Libbey declined their offer to call it "Libbey Day", and instead suggested "Ojai Day". The celebration still takes place each year in October. The arcade and bell tower still stand, and have come to serve as symbols of the city and the surrounding valley. Libbey's pergola was destroyed in 1971, after being damaged in an explosion. It was rebuilt in the early 2000s to complete the architectural continuity of the downtown area. The town completed a new park, Cluff Vista Park, in 2002, which contains several small themed regions of California native plants (List of California native plants). Geography Ojai is located at at Hines Peak (Hines Peak (California)), about six miles north of Thomas Aquinas College. Snow frequently falls on the high peaks during winter.

'''Ojai''' ( wide, surrounded by hills and mountains. The population was 7,461 at the 2010 census, down from 7,862 at the 2000 census.

Ojai is a tourism destination with boutique hotels and recreation opportunities including hiking, and spiritual retreats (Retreat (spiritual)), as well as for a farmers' market on Sundays with local organic agriculture. It also has small businesses specializing in local and ecologically friendly art, design, and home improvement—such as galleries (Contemporary art gallery) and a solar power company. Chain stores (other than a few gas stations) are prohibited by Ojai city law to encourage local small business development and keep the town unique.

The city's self-styled nickname is "Shangri-La" referencing the natural beauty of this health-and-spirituality-focused region. While there are no known references, it is commonly claimed that the mountains visible from the city were used, but then cut, from the 1937 movie (Lost Horizon (1937 film)) as the mystical sanctuary of James Hilton (James Hilton (novelist))'s novel ''Lost Horizon''.
