      he story of the City's fight for incorporation is indeed an interesting tale. The birth of Rancho Palos Verdes was the culmination of a series of events that occurred during the first half of the 20th Century, as well as the actual drive for incorporation, which began in earnest in the early 1960's and finally came to fruition in 1973.

      n 1913, Frank A. Vanderlip, president of the National Bank of New York, bought the 16,000-acre Palos Verdes Peninsula sight unseen from rancher Jotham Bixby. Even though Mr. Vanderlip had never seen the Peninsula, he recognized its strategic location and potential for development. Mr. Vanderlip had a grand vision to develop the "Palos Verdes Project" into the "most fashionable and exclusive residential colony" in the nation.

      Rancho Palos Verdes is still an oasis connected yet separated from the hectic pace of modern city life. For the many families who have lived in Rancho Palos Verdes prior to and since its incorporation, it has been, in the words of author Augusta Fink, "the promise of paradise fulfilled."
