Citrus Union High School, originally founded on July 14, 1891 in the Barnes Hotel was the first union high school in California, and was located on the southwest corner of Citrus Avenue and Broadway in the then-town of Gladstone. In 1902 it was rebuilt between Azusa and Glendora on "old Dalton Hill" for the then-significant sum of $12,990 (nearly $1,000 over budget), and again opened its doors to students in 1904. In 1920 a bond for $300,000 to build a new, larger school passed, and on June 15, 1922 members of the Masonic Lodge laid the cornerstone of what would be Citrus Union High School and Junior College, built in a beautiful Spanish Renaissance style by architects John C. Austin and W. Horace Austin.
