Join Gary Keyes and Mike Lawler, authors of Murder & Mayhem in the Crescenta Valley, as they reveal the seamy underbelly that belies the valley’s beautifully pleasant exterior.
From illegal gambling and prostitution to claims of alien abduction, Crescenta Valley has seen it all. Once home to thriving moonshine operations and shocking Nazi rallies, the valley’s past is riddled with scandalous tales that many would prefer to forget. Yet not all of Crescenta Valley’s tawdry history could remain forgotten or hidden in its day. The infamous C.C. Julian oil scandal made national headlines. Even today, recent information reveals a local internment camp for Japanese and Germans that opened the day after Pearl Harbor was bombed.
