2009 - The Year of Valley History
Last spring Fred Berk, Librarian of The Museum of the San Fernando Valley prepared a special historic postcard exhibit for The Museum's participation in LA Heritage Day at Heritage Square. It was so well received that he expanded the exhibit and has taken it on-the-road. (You may recall that one of The Museum's missions is to get history to all parts of the greater San Fernando Valley.) For a month a variation of the exhibit has been in the entry of the West Valley Regional Library in Northridge.
Now Fred is at it again! This time, he's working on a special San Fernando Valley historic postcard exhibit for the re-opening of Campo de Cahuenga.
Campo de Cahuenga, which can lay claim to being the birthplace of California, will reopen for its acclaimed re-enactment in November and permanently shortly thereafter.
