The Gable Mansion
It does not happen often when one of the most magnificent historical dwellings in a region is restored to the grandeur of its time while updated to have the modern luxuries of our time. The Gable Mansion is one of the region’s most impressive private homes and one of the State of California’s most cherished trophy properties, as reflected in the designations given as California Registered Historical Landmark No. 864. While many of its contemporaries have fallen to fire, deterioration, and changing tastes, the Gable/Barrow Mansion has maintained the integrity of both it’s construction and setting.
The DeVille was originally The Clark, which opened in 1926, during the silent movie era. It closed nearly 30 years ago, a victim of time and the era of multiplexes, then housed a church for a time. The church congregation moved out of the building and it sat empty for years before Johnson assumed ownership.
Rechristened the DeVille, it opened to much fanfare to a select group of local residents, business people and elected officials, with political comedian Will Durst serving as event emcee at the private gathering. Antsy McClain & The Trailer Park Troubadours, a Nashville-based Americana band with a wry sense of humor reflected in its song list, served as the evening’s entertainment. Several of those who attended that night predicted that the dazzlingly new theater — the stage highlighted by a restored, shiny proscenium and a red curtain, its overall interior color scheme a sophisticated Art Deco-inspired black and gray — would transform downtown Vacaville.
