Regarding Gerberding / Moranda House.
No. 86 - Gerberding/Moranda House, Built 1890. Designated October 1982.
One of the few old houses left in Port Hueneme, it was built as a single story, four-room dwelling. In 1897 it received an addition; the attic's conversion into a second floor may have occurred at this time. Its interior was remodeled in 1928, and it was completely restored in 1981-82. The windows are tall and narrow, called "four high and two wide" (double in height to width). It was built for Frederick Gerberding, brother-in-law of prominent citizen Thomas R. Bard, and was later the home of the Lawrence Moranda family. Mr. Moranda was a Southern Pacific railroad station agent and later served as justice of the peace. Landmark No. 37, Moranda Park, was named for the family.
