How Green Was My Valley?

Mercer 7744

Kevin Roderick peruses his book The San Fernando Valley: America's Suburb , at Los Encinos State Historic Park.

UPDATE: The state of California may close Los Encinos State Historic Park, at Balboa and Ventura Blvd. in Encino, once "the hub of human habitation in the Southern San Fernando Valley," because it doesn't make enough money. No, it's not a moneymaker, but it's tranquil, fun, and rich in history. Off-Ramp talked with local historian Kevin Roderick about the park a few years ago.
