2009 - The Year of Valley History
Putting together the histories of San Fernando Valley suburbs is a never-ending job. Little attention was paid over the years to Pacoima, historically a small working class community at the northern edge of the City of Los Angeles. The Museum of the San Fernando Valley is determined that the histories of the families who have lived and worked in Pacoima over the years will be collected, archived and shared with The Museum's audiences.

The Museum of the San Fernando Valley serves the residents and industries of Pacoima.

The San Fernando Valley, in the heart of the Creative Capital of the World, deserves a great Museum of history and culture.

played baseball on old man Manfull's front lawn every day in the mid to late 1950's, used to know his granddaughters. was invited into the home several times, remember well the huge beam ceilings and a bathroom with hinged saloon doors. when a neighbor's window was broken by a foul ball old man Manfull paid for it on the spot, then took all of the local kids to his drive-in dairy for ice cream. Manfull was very nice to the local kids, although his many Great Dane's kept at the dairy scared the daylights out of most.
