A view of the Community House in the Weeks Poultry Colony, circa 1927. From Charles Weeks' book "One Acre and Independence." The caption for this image reads, "This is the community house where visitors to the Charles Weeks Colony can secure board and room while investigating intensive little farms. Also families may secure lodging there while building their own home." In 1920, the Los Angeles Chamber of Commerce requested that Charles Weeks come to the San Fernando Valley to establish a series of one-acre egg farms. The farms would be based on the successful formula Mr. Weeks developed in Palo Alto, Calif. The "poultry colony" Mr. Weeks developed into a small farming community, which actively engaged in uplifting the spirit of its members, and aided in the social, intellectual and artistic enlightenment of the region. Black and white photographic reproduction, 3.5 x 4 in.
