Come To Celebrate & Honor The Ishibashi's Farm History on PV Peninsula

It seems that in the past few months, my blog has become very Ishibashi family-centered and sadly, not always with good news about them.

This morning's Daily Breeze has a front page article about plans to sell the family's historic Ishibashi Ranch on the Palos Verdes Peninsula. Ishibashi Family Selling Historic Portuguese Bend Ranch.

The 5-acre ranch is part of the land that James' and Tom's father leased in the early 1900s. The Ishibashi's were one of about 40 Japanese American families who farmed the Palos Verdes Peninsula on leased land at the turn of the 20th Century since they were not permitted to own land.

As a way to honor their farming legacy, Sande Ishibashi is having a celebration at the ranch house on Saturday that is open to the public.
