STATE PLAN TO CLOSE THE VALLEY'S LOS ENCINOS HISTORIC PARK

DISCOVERING OUR VALLEY   2011

Michael Crosby, longtime Museum ally, has just notified us of a State of California plan to close Los Encinos State Historic Park.  PLEASE take a moment to defend one of the Valley's most significant historic and cultural sites.

Los Encinos State Historic Park, at the corner of Balboa and Ventura Blvd, in Encino California, was, until the late 19th Century, the hub of human habitation in the Southern San Fernando Valley. This five-acre early California rancho includes the original nine-room de la Osa Adobe, the two-story limestone Garnier House, the Reyes Hut, natural springs, and a lake (shaped like a Spanish guitar.) The park contains exhibits on early California ranch life.

You can ACT TODAY by visiting:
