San Dimas in Los Angeles County, California — The American West (Pacific Coastal)
The Teague Nursery Showroom
R.M. Teague came to San Dimas in 1878 and developed the largest citrus nursery in the world. By 1888, he had close to 700,000 seedling trees growing in areas throughout San Dimas. He shipped trees to all parts of the world including Spain, Italy and South America.
Mr. Teague needed a place where his customers could come and view his trees rather than walking through the fields. He constructed his "Showroom,” a lath house with a large front façade, along with office space to please his potential customers. This façade stood until the present building was constructed on the site.
