Fate uncertain for shuttered California Oil Museum in Santa Paula


The California Oil Museum in Santa Paula has been temporarily closed for more than a year as the city tries to determine its next move for the building under a looming deadline.

The lease between the city and building owner Chevron expires July 1 unless Santa Paula gives the oil company written notice to extend six months beforehand, which is December, city officials said.

On Wednesday, the Santa Paula City Council requested staff members gather more information about potentially extending the lease agreement with Chevron. However, the building requires costly upgrades and which party is responsible is under dispute. 

“We all love the building, we all love the history, the importance of it, but we have to be financially responsible,” said Councilwoman Leslie Cornejo.
