Citrus Packing House

Sorry, there are no airings at this time. Please check this page for future updates.

The College Heights Lemon Packing House is the last visible link to Claremont's pioneering history in the citrus industry. While largely perceived as a college town, Claremont's major source of income until after the World War II was the citrus industry. Very little remains of this history and the packing house almost was lost until the community came together with a developer that had real vision and a love of history. The "Packing House" is now a wonderful destination in Claremont filled with shops, restaurants, arty galleries and even some housing. It's a true success story and great example of re-use.
