Anaheim, Key Ranch, Lloyd Wright, and a mystery

Steve Faessel's new "Images of America" book, Anaheim: 1940-2007, is coming out this month. It's the companion volume to his first book, Early Anaheim. (Cover shown at right.)

Chris Epting, one of my co-contributors at "Greetings from H.B." presents us with a mystery that involves Huntington Beach and Lloyd Wright, the son of architect Frank Lloyd Wright. Check out the details at this link.

The Floral Park Home and Garden Tour is also coming up on Apr. 28 and 29 in Santa Ana. For information, visit their website, or call (714) 567-4795.
