"Geo. A. Pearson's young orange ranch will make an ideal mount- ain home. It contains fifty acres, most of which can be cultivated for orchard purposes. The land is at an elevation of 250 feet above the town, as may be seen by the accompanying view of it. Twelve acres are already in orchard, and thirteen more ready for the trees. The water supply comes from Clamshell canyon and is stored in a reservoir. Irrigation is done by hose. Mr. Pearson was for a number of years a resident of Monrovia, part of the time city clerk, and still retains a warm place in his heart for the"Gem of the Foothills". He now resides in Los Angeles, and is in the Real Estate business with another former Monrovian, W.H. Cook." Monrovia Messenger Souvenir Edition 1897. Looking southwest. George A. Pearson was also City Clerk 1892-93. (John L. Wiley's History of Monrovia 1927 p 81)
