The house, designed by a well-known architect, Stiles Clements, was constructed beginning in 1929, occupied by the Adamsons during the summer, beginning in 1930, and lived in all year beginning in 1937.
In 1968, the State purchased the property. In 1971, the president of Pepperdine University moved in, as part of an effort to maintain the house until it could be properly restored and shown to the public as an historic unit. The Malibu Lagoon Interpretive Association was formed in 1981, and they carefully planned for the opening of the house as a museum, in 1983.
