This photo postcard shows a landscape view of the original Serra Retreat in the foothills near Malibu Creek in central Malibu. Named for Junípero Serra, the Apostle of California, Serra Retreat was purchased from the Rindge estate in 1942 by the Franciscan Order of California. Although the original buildings seen here were destroyed in a 1970 wildfire, Serra Retreat rebuilt on the same location and remains a religious retreat and conference center today. On reverse: Sierra Retreat. Malibu, California. Weekend retreats for men conducted by the Franciscan Fathers.
