CHPS presents "Life in the Citrus Ranches: Stories of Hope, Family and Community"
The Corona Historic Preservation Society (CHPS) invites the community to a panel discussion that will delve into the history of citrus ranches once found in Corona. "Life in the Citrus Ranches: Stories of Hope, Family and Community" will be held on Saturday, February 8, 2020. The presentation will begin at 10 a.m. in the Community Room at the Historic Civic Center (815 W. 6th St.).
The free presentation will feature former residents of citrus ranches. Artifacts and photographs will be on exhibit, but community members are also invited to bring their own items for display during the event. Complimentary refreshments will be provided.
The Buena Vista camp, built in the late 1930s, was the second-largest residential complex at the Foothill Lemon Company’s main ranch in the Corona area. It had single-family units and was on what was once the southeast corner of Chase Avenue and Buena Vista Street. A baseball field and play area was just south of the complex.
