A Bit of History…
A dozen years after the building of the Haggarty Mansion, which later became the Neighborhood Church, Dr. Dennis Smith, a medical missionary returned from war-ravaged China in 1935 and helped in the development of Palos Verdes. The Palos Verdes Project was bankrupt and lots were inexpensive. Dr. Smith bought 10 lots, one of which he saved for his own home. Two of the homes on this Yule Parlor Parade were built on Smith lots. An ebullient man, he gathered neighborhood children for Sunday school in his parlor with his own two young ones, and this became the foundation for the subsequent group of neighbors who in the ‘50s bought the decaying Haggerty mansion and turned it into a church.Holiday Shopping
