Culver Centennial History Book Makes History


September 22, 2016

The first 100 years met with raves at the opening book signing at Westfield Culver City on the City’s 99th anniversary on September 20, 2016. Record crowds stood in line waiting to purchase the book and have Julie personally sign them for those in attendance. The book was selling at the rate of one every minute for over two hours of the signing.

Authored by Culver City Historian Julie Lugo Cerra. The centennial publication is her second history book of Culver City, plus three books on Culver City from the renowned Scenes of America Series and numerous other books and articles.

Lugo Cerra is a true native of Culver City, born, raised and has lived her entire life in Culver City as a fifth generation Californian.

The Culver City Chamber as part of its involvement in the Centennial began this project over 30 months ago to allow us to bring it out on the 99th anniversary of Harry Culver’s dream of a City half way between downtown Los Angeles and the resort of Venice.

The Centennial History of Culver City is available at the Culver City Chamber of Commerce located at Westfield Culver City in suite #1260 or through its website The Centennial Book is also available at Culver City Historical Society, George Petrelli’s Steakhouse, Sorrento’s Italian Market and Lundeen’s
