The "Top Gun" house

The Graves house on the corner of Pacific Street & Seagaze Drive is named for Dr. Henry Graves who built it in 1887. It’s one of the oldest houses in Oceanside. Today, the house commonly known as the “Top Gun” house, because it appeared in the 1986 blockbuster movie “Top Gun” as the home of character “Charlotte ‘Charlie’ Blackwood’s” (Kelley McGillis).
