Background History From California’s Office of Historic Preservation:
Pomona College, incorporated October 14, 1887, held its first class in this small frame cottage on September 12, 1888. Those in attendance consisted of a mere handful of eager students, five faculty members, and the president, Professor Edwin C. Norton. Five months later, in January 1889, the college moved to an unfinished boom hotel on a plot of land in the town of Claremont.
Location and Coordinates:
- Southwest corner Mission Boulevard and South White Street, Pomona.
- 34°03’17″N 117°45’32″W
If look for the actual building, you will not find it. The only thing you will find is a rock with the landmark plaque which is right next to Angelo’s Burgers.
