about Adamson House and Malibu Lagoon Museum & Beach:
The classic home, designed by Stiles O. Clements in 1929, was built for Rhoda Rindge Adamson and her husband, Merritt Huntley Adamson. The couple were the daughter and son-in-law of Frederick Hastings Rindge and May Knight Rindge, last owners of the Malibu Spanish Land Grant. Architectural notes of the Adamson House include: ceramic tile produced by Malibu Potteries (1926-32), hand-carved teak doors, filigree ironwork, and lead-framed bottle-glass windows. The house and grounds share one of the most beautiful beach locations in Southern California. Stellar views of Malibu Lagoon, Malibu Beach, and the Malibu Pier can't be beat!
The Malibu Lagoon Museum adjoins the Adamson House and contains a collection of artifacts, rare photographs, and documents. A museum tour takes the visitor from the early Chumash Indian era through the Spanish California culture to the genteel and romantic ranching days of the famed Rindge and Adamson families.
