The Adamson House, designed by a well-known architect, Stiles Clements, was constructed beginning in 1929. Built for Rhoda Rindge Adamson and her husband, Merritt Huntley Adamson. Situated near the Malibu Pier between popular Surfrider Beach and the Malibu Lagoon, the house boasts an exotic mix of Spanish and Moorish influences. It is now the Malibu Lagoon Museum.
