- Grandma Prisbey's Bottle Village is currently closed to the public, but it's still standing. It was badly damaged in the 1994 Northridge earthquake, and, as a result, became a much more dangerous place than it used to be. Since then, there is a Preservation Society dedicated to repairing and making the site safer in hopes that Bottle Village will be reopened some day. You can read all about it and see pictures of it at the Preservation Society's site at http://www.vanace.com/BV/index.htm

She fought the good fight, and if I remember correctly..kept the city from tearing it down before she passed away.
