California Citrus State Historic Park Professional Review and Guide

"The California Citrus State Historic Park opened in 1993 as a living history museum dedicated to preserving a rapidly fading facet of Southern California’s history. It is often hard to imagine the tract homes and strip malls that make up sprawling Southern California are on land that once held vast expanses of lush, sweetsmelling citrus groves."

"Park visitors are greeted by a replica of an orange juice stand, located on the corner of Van Buren Boulevard and Dufferin Avenue. In the days before interstate highways and reliable auto air conditioners, stands offering fresh squeezed orange juice and lemonade were a common sight and popular with thirsty motorists. The brightly colored stand is an appropriate welcome to California Citrus State Historic Park, which tells the story of how “Citriculture” influenced the landscape—and culture—of Southern California, as well as how it helped shape public perception of the region."
