Survey number HABS CA-2267
Significance: The Pitzer Ranch Complex contains architecturally and historically significant structures. These structures are associated with the agricultural heritage of the City of Claremont and Southern California. The Pitzer-Peairs House is on the National Register of Historic Places. The structures are considered architecturally significant due to the use of native fieldstone and conformance to the surrounding rustic setting. The structures are considered historically significant as they were constructed during the period of early settlement of Claremont and early exploration of the citrus-producing industry. The Pitzer family was a leading family in the establishment of the citrus industry in Claremont and Southern California.
