A new library designed to look like a rambling 19th century mansion will be a key part of the Irvine Ranch Headquarters Historic Park under a plan approved this week by the Board of Supervisors. There was controversy about placing the Lower Peters Canyon Branch Library on the historical Irvine property. Detractors argued that the project could alter the look of the Irvine family grounds, the original buildings of which were constructed in 1876.
