Inscription.  This Victorian farm house was built in 1898 by Gerhardt (known as G.P.) Ledig, who managed one of the area's largest citrus ranches and was the first member of the prominent Ledig family to settle in what was then called Ioamosa. It was one of 5 homes built by the Ledig Family. G.P. Ledig served as clerk of the school board from 1903-1913. The house was expanded by Colonel Marr in 1935 and again in 1947. The house was relocated in 1991 by the city from its previous address, 5702 Amethyst Avenue, due to the extension of Wilson Avenue.

This residence was moved, rehabilitated and then dedicated as a single family residence in 1994 by the city of Rancho Cucamonga in order to retain a valuable historic community resource. (Marker Number 31.)
