Topanga History

The Topanga Historical Society
The Topanga Historical Society was organized in 1974 by a group of dedicated community leaders who recognized the urgent need to collect and preserve records of Topanga’s unique history and to make them available to future generations. The Society maintains an Archive Center and presents quarterly potluck events featuring a discussion about a local history topic.

The Topanga Story
Topanga Story Book CoverThe expanded edition is part in-depth history book, part lavish art book. Building on the sold-out first edition, it is meticulously researched and offers much more about Topanga's eccentric history and quirky citizens – from its early pioneers to the beats, hippies, rockers, artists and activists who have made the community unique. There are dozens of new photos, from colorful Canyon beauty shots to priceless historical prints. It's a feast for the mind and the eyes.
