August 27th Speaker Meeting: Michael Crosby to Speak on History of Encino

"Encino: Images of America"author Michael Crosby will give a presentation on the vast history of Encino, which has experienced a surprisingly international sequence of ownership, beginning with Native Americans, then the Spanish and Californios, followed by the French, Basques, and Americans. In the post-World War II boom, Encino became an affluent enclave of Hollywood’s movie and television stars. Encino originated around an artesian spring that still provides water to Los Encinos State Historic Park, where Michael served as president, vice president, and archivist of the Los Encinos Docent Association. he is currently serving as Librarian of the Mark Harrington Library at the historic Andrés Pico Adobe. This meeting will take place at 7 p.m. with free refreshements and a door prize drawing. Please come early for the best parking.
