2009 - The Year of Valley History
Join the members of the San Fernando Valley Historical Association at the Andres Pico Adobe on Thursday, August 27 at 7
P.M. when local author and SFVHS member Bronwyn Ralph discusses her just-published book,
Off the Beaten Path: A Guide to Exploring theCultural Landmarks, Historic Monuments and Other
Points of Interest in the San Fernando Valley.
Bronwyn’s book is a travel guide to exploring the rich history of the San Fernando Valley and the
wonderful landmarks that the Valley has to offer. “By taking an interest in visiting these historic sites,
it almost guarantees that the preservation of these points of interest can be preserved for future
generations,” she says.
A native of California who grew up in the San Fernando Valley, Bronwyn enjoys volunteering as a
docent at the 1899-built Doheny Mansion, visiting historical sites, and hiking.
We look forward to a fascinating evening learning more about our Valley and Bronwyn’s
book, which will be available to purchase. There will be refreshments and great fellowship after her
