The Palos Verdes Peninsula is celebrating a big birthday in 2023 and the Local History Center is planning an event to commemorate this occasion.  It was on Saturday, June 17, 1923 that a real estate rally was held on the grounds of the Malaga Cove School (now the PVPUSD Administration Building) to entice people to purchase property here.  The rally basically launched the modern development of the Palos Verdes Peninsula.

Working the Peninsula Friends of the Library (PFL) and Peninsula cities and organizations, the Local History Center is spearheading Doors Open Peninsula 2023: Celebrating 100 Years of History on the Palos Verdes Peninsula (DOP 2023) to commemorate this historic event.  DOP 2023 is a Peninsula-wide open house and your opportunity to learn about the Peninsula’s rich history, architecture, cultural institutions, people and open spaces in celebration of this milestone date.
