Atwater Village Turns 100
Atwater Village is entering the ranks of communities with three-digits ages as well.
In celebration, Friends of Atwater Village is creating a book for Arcadia Publishing’s popular Images of America Series. The group is asking anyone with old photographs, documents, newspaper articles, receipts or advertising from local businesses or other historic information regarding Atwater Village to share it. There is also a questionnaire available at friendsofatwatervillage.org for the sharing of personal history.
