Within the borders of Claremont, California are seven different colleges all of which are highly rated and two are even well known internationally attracting students and faculty from all over the world which brings international moves to the area. By the beginning of the early 1900’s the area was also home to vast acreage of lemon and orange groves which fueled the growth of large packing houses which became the basis for the Sunkist Corporation.
The town was founded by the Santa Fe Railroad in 1887 as it developed a new route between Chicago, IL and Los Angeles; the railroad built a station and a large, ornate hotel to attract Easterners to the new development. The town failed miserably to attract new residents and the town almost failed until the elders decided to give the hotel to a Congregational Community Church for a college which flourished rapidly bringing many new residents to the area. Pomona College was so successful that over time six more colleges were established and thus the area was nicknamed the “home of trees and PhD’s”.
Today Claremont is a very desirable place to live with most residents supporting higher education, an open form of government and a strong sense of volunteerism; there exists a strong sense of community among all residents.
