Local History Newspapers & Maps

The Local History Center includes biographical and subject files generated largely from articles clipped from local newspapers, such as the Palos Verdes Peninsula News, the Daily Breeze, and the Los Angeles Times.  Started in 1937, the Palos Verdes Peninsula News is the longest running publication documenting the Peninsula community.

A small group of historic and topographical maps of the Peninsula comprise the map collection.  These are currently undergoing re-organization, but are available for perusal with docent assistance.
