Bolton Hall Museum and Little Landers Historical Society Present
The Agricultural Beginnings of Crescenta Valley
Local historian and author, Jo Anne Sadler will explore the origins of the valley communities of La Cañada and La Crescenta. Focusing on the beginnings of agriculture in the Crescenta Valley, the area was very remote and there was a ongoing challenge to secure a consistent water supply. It was difficult for the early settlers to make a living. Jo Anne also has updated information on the 1914 killing of the last grizzly bear by Sunland resident Cornelius Johnson.
Jo Anne Sadler is the author of Crescenta Valley Pioneers & Their Legacies and Frontier Days in Crescenta Valley. She is the past president of the Historical Society of the Crescenta Valley. Her long-term interest in family history and immigration led her to becoming active in the historical society and researching the nineteenth-century history of the Crescenta Valley and the San Gabriel foothills.
