History & History Related Items

Claremont history:

Claremont was one of about thirty sites laid out by the Santa Fe Railroad between San Bernardino and Los Angeles. They were counting on a large population boom in that corridor. But, the boom did not last and some of the towns became extinct! Not Claremont - a local land company transferred its properties and holdings, including the Hotel Claremont, to the "new" Pomona College in 1888.

Claremont was incorporated on 3 October 1907. Only 3.5 square miles when it was incorporated, the city now includes over 14 square miles of land area.

Most likely, Claremont was named for Claremont, New Hampshire when is was founded in 1887. Until the mid 1970's, it remained a fruit processing center. Today, not only the educational opportunities are in Claremont, but there is manufacturing, including specialty makers of scientific instruments and semiconductors.
The founding of Claremont: April, 1887
The incorporation date of Claremont: 3 October 1907
