Their names run deep through local history and lore, adorning street signs, canyons, historical buildings, homes and ranches in the swath of suburbia between Pasadena and Tujunga, where the towns of La Crescenta and La Caņada took shape, along with the unique community of Montrose. Profiled in the pages of Crescenta Valley Pioneers & Their Legacies by author Jo Anne Sadler, a researcher and frequent writer for the Historical Society of Crescenta Valley, are such singularly important local characters as Theodor Pickens, the first permanent settler; Dr. Benjamin B. Briggs, the founder of La Crescenta; Jacob L. Lanterman and Adolphus W. Williams, the original developers of Rancho La Caņada; and the Le Mesnager family, whose historic wine barn still stands in Deukmejian Wilderness Park. Book jacket.
