Adamson House State Park, Malibu

This is a gem of a short trip for anyone in Southern California. The Adamson house once controlled 13,000 acres of what is now Mailbu, California. The family fought the railroads and the Pacific Coast Highway, eventually losing out to the Roosevelt administration. From cattle ranching the branced into dairy farming (ADORH dairy) and tile making (Mailbu tiles). Their land became Peperdine University and the Serra Retreat Center in Malibu. All that remains is this well preserved jewel of a house sitting right on the beach north (really west) of Malibu pier (which the family built).
