Regarding Canoga Mission Gallery. This building was originally designed as a horse stable in 1934 by film star Francis Lederer and his wife, Marian. In 1967 the Lederers converted the stable into an art gallery. In 1975 the City of Los Angeles dedicated this stable as Historic Cultural Monument No. 135. The art gallery has closed, and today it is a winery and beer garden.
The Lederer Residence is across the street, on top of the hill. It is City Historic Cultural Monument No. 204 - a private residence, not open to the public.
