In 1910, Costa Mesa’s first commercial apple orchards were planted by George Waterman & George Huntington.
Also, a 2-room schoolhouse opened at the corner of 17th St. and Orange Street. One hundred years later the Costa Mesa Omlette Parlor sits on this land.
Many thanks to the Costa Mesa Historical Society for this information!!! We appreciate the volunteers at this non-profit organization who keep track of Costa Mesa’s past.
What will Costa Mesa look like in 2110? Let’s help the Costa Mesa Historical Society continue to track Costa Mesa’s story. One way to help is by eating at Ruby’s Diner on Thursday, May 6, 2010. The diner will donate 20% of all food and non-alcoholic beverage purchases to the Costa Mesa Historical Society. Stop by – the event goes on all day long!
