Archive / Collection information

Business records of the Santa Monica Land & Water Company incorporated in 1897 by Sen. John P. Jones and Arcadia de Bandini de Baker. SML&WCo sub-divided and developed about 50,000 acres in West Los Angeles including Brentwood, Pacific Palisades, Santa Monica, and Bel Air. The Archives includes photos, ephemera, legal records, and correspondence from the early 1900s through the 1970s. Three books have been produced from the archives--Brentwood-Los Angeles--Images of America; Pacific Palisades--Images of America; and Westside Chronicles. All are available on Amazon.com. The archive is not open to the public.
