BUILDING A GREAT MUSEUM FOR THE SAN FERNANDO VALLEY


Unpublished Master's thesis by Lewis H. Height Jr. - University of California Los Angeles August 1953 "Settlement Patterns of the San Fernando Valley, Southern California.
Gift to The Museum of the San Fernando Valley from Justin Height, Lompoc, California 2014. (click on image to enlarge it.)

Grain production in the San Fernando Valley in the 1890s. The ranch in the foreground and that in the distance were units of the Los Angeles Farm and Milling Company lands. The view is from the area west of the present (1953) Sherman Oaks looking northwest toward Santa Susanna Pass. Original photograph was in the archives of Security First National Bank, Los Angeles.

I believe this to be the Home Ranch, one of the 5 major ranching centers of the Lankershim/Van Nuys holdings. The white spot, right-center, was Isaac Newton Van Nuys' home, the first wood frame constructed house in the Valley.
