Part of Phil Carter's extensive history and Valley memorabilia collection - Photo by Gerald Fecht for The Museum of the San Fernando Valley.

For Valley residents living in the Tarzana and Reseda areas of our city, a trip to the Red Barn Feed and Saddlery means not only great service and a full array of "creature comforts", but a chance to visit Valley and American history as well. Red Barn's owner, Phil Carter is one of those valuable people who not only work hard at their businesses but care about history and its consequences.
Phil is a retired professor of social welfare from California State University Los Angeles. He lists among his many students Los Angeles City Councilman Tom LaBonge, also an avid student of our city's history. Red Barn Feed and Saddlery is a significant part of Valley history in its own right.

Wonderful post Dr. Fecht,
Phil Carter receives many Historicl pieces from his customers throughout the year.
The Red Barn is a throwback to the old style farm and feed stores. You can actually still buy Baby chicks at the red Barn to this day...
