RALPH HERMAN SPEAKS OF TARZANA HISTORY

CHERISHING OUR VALLEY HISTORY          2013

 Bronze bookend - Adohr Farms - Collection of Ralph Herman 2013

       Among the wonderful treasures shown today by San Fernando Valley historian at the Porter Ranch Country Club, Ralph Herman, was this handsome bronze bookend featuring the Adohr Farms Dairy. In 1916, south of Ventura Boulevard at Lindley Avenue, Merritt Adamson opened Adohr Farms. Adamson honored his wife Rhoda, by naming their farm "Rhoda", his wife's name spelled backward. The dairyman built the historic Adamson House in Malabu. Urbanization gradually squeezed out the Valley's once popular dairies.
