Owl Garage

Ed Adkins built the small Standard Oil gas station and garage on the east side of the road. A large metal "highline" tower next to the road marks the location today. When the southbound lanes of the I-5 were built, the old Ridge Route was realigned south of Owl Garage. Heading south, the new alignment curves toward the right at the metal tower. If you stop to explore, you will find a piece of the original highway continuing straight for a short distance. Mr. Adkins was the founder of Castaic Brick Company in Castaic.
