YOUR MUSEUM - WORKING EVERY DAY TO SAVE THE HISTORIC WEDDINGTON HOUSE

2009 The Year of Valley History

Preserving the Weddington House is a major priority for The Museum of the San Fernando Valley. Here are four snapshots from the early days of the historic house from the David High Collection. Now highly endangered, the Weddington House could provide educators, school children and others interested in Valley history with a great venue from which to glimpse into another time and "place within a place."
