San Marino High Students Explore Michael White Adobe

The Friends of the Michael White Adobe (FoMWA) hosted San Marino High School’s AP humanities class on April 26.

Thirty students, along with their teachers Lisa Davidson and Michelle Pauline were guests, who traveled back in time experiencing what life would have been like in the 1840’s White household.

Students learned the history of the White family, how the adobe was constructed and what natural resources were used. Board members Marla Felber and Bill Ellinger led the tour.

FoMWA, a nonprofit, grew out of the task force created in 2009 by San Marino Unified School District to explore options for preserving and reusing the Adobe, highlighting its Native American, Spanish, Mexican and early pre-California historical significance from the Old Spanish Trail. Composed of architects, preservationists, conservators, San Marino residents and other community members.

The group welcomes all grades throughout San Gabriel Valley and Los Angeles County for the immersive educational experience. For more information about the adobe and the efforts to preserve it, visit michaelwhiteadobe.com/.

Next week, the AP humanities students will visit the Japanese Heritage Shoya House at The Huntington.
