As a gathering place on the high school campus
The Friends of the Michael White Adobe are planning and raising funds for the Adobe's long-term preservation. This will include seismic retrofitting (strengthening the structure to withstand earthquakes) and finding a new use that will preserve this historic structure for future generations.
Adapting the Adobe into a Hall of Fame featuring Academics, Athletics, Arts and Alumni would align with the San Marino Unified School District’s strategic plan to deliver a world-class education. We envision the future of the Michael White Adobe as a place honoring current and past student achievement and serving as a welcoming gathering space.
Visions of the Michale White Adobe as a student and alumni Hall of Fame
"This modest little adobe has packed within its thick walls not only the history of early California, but its adobe bricks and ancient timbers have hand prints and shadows of our earliest inhabitants...who laid the groundwork for our state."
Dorothy Jenkins Ross, Former President San Marino Historical Society
