Pomona Heritage, Inc., (PH) is a nonprofit organization dedicated to the restoration and preservation of Pomona, California's historically significant homes and buildings and to the education and awareness of our residents about the cultural richness with which we are entrusted. Pomona has thousands of beautiful historical homes and buildings scattered throughout the city. We have ambitious plans to increase community awareness of the cultural richness with which Pomona citizens are entrusted. Please check out our District Q&A for more information on what is means to buy and live in a historic district.
Why the Pomona Area is so Special
The city has some 2,700 individual homes with historic significance. Particular gems of the city include several areas of the town built in the 1920's that are still actually quite unharmed and in original condition. It is extremely rare to have an entire large family neighborhood, built 70 years ago, to be still intact.
Driving or walking in the neighborhoods is a cultural delight. The homes are very diverse in style. Their architecture and home sizes greatly vary, but they each contribute to the richness of the special historic neighborhoods. The architects of the period made many bold and subtle statements. For example the river rocks found on the foundations and porches of many of the area's homes are there to architecturally blend the home into the land below it.
This is the 7th annual Pomona Beautification day! Each year about 1,000 Pomona residents sign up to take part in this citywide clean up. Teams and individuals are encouraged to sign-up to participate ahead of time. Dumpster are provided at select locations around the city to help our efforts.
Each year the Pomona Heritage board and members select an area in need and join forces on the day of the event to help beautify the city. Write to Dan McIntyre, the president of Pomona Heritage to suggest a location firstname.lastname@example.org.
