1. Frost Brothers General Store Marker
Inscription.  At this location stood The Frost Brothers General Store, purchased by George Frost in the mid 1890s. George Frost was a horticulturist, working for the Chaffey Brothers in the Etiwanda area after moving from Canada in 1882. One of Etiwanda's early pioneers, George Frost, was a public leader assisting in building local churches, organizing the fruit-grower's associations, the community center, and serving on the Etiwanda School Board. The Frost Brothers General Store provided basic goods for early settlers and also housed the community's Post Office where George Frost served as Etiwanda's early postmaster. George's sons John and Will Frost purchased the store from their father in 1907, and renamed it to Frost Brothers General Merchandise. The general store continued to serve the Etiwanda community for over 70 years before burning down in 1966.
