Even though we were closed yesterday, we had to come in for a wonderful donation from life time members, Jan & Dennis Dooly of Long Beach. They brought us an 1800s Marble top oak dresser, a set of antique carved walnut double bed boards and 5 antique oak pressed back chairs. This will help fill some gaps left when the LA Co. Museum of Natural History took back all their loan items from 1974 we had on display a few years ago.

SAD NEWS !
We found out yesterday that someone cut the locks on the doors of our storage rooms next to restrooms and stole our BBQ grill. Just purchased it a few years ago and only used it three times, twice at 2018 & 2019 Oktoberfest and at the 2019 Battle of Rio San Gabriel to feed our volunteers. Sad that people steal things that others work hard for. We're surprise our neighbors didn't hear or report anything. It's a very large heavy item.

Thanks Byron Jackson for the great photos!

Last night was the Oktoberfest at the Adobe sponsored by the Angry Horse Brewing and benefitting the Montebello Historical Society.
This 3rd annual event keeps growing as many locals and visitors showed up despite the moist weather to toast a pint with friends in support of local history.
Soo many people came this year that both food and beer was sold out!
Thank You Montebello!! See you next year! 🍻🥨

What an exciting day. We just received this donation of original grapeshot and cannon balls from John White of Riverside. As a boy, he found them just north of Beverly Blvd. in the Rio Hondo river back in 1958-1960. What a great addition to our Battle of Rio Gabriel exhibit.
