With genuine artifacts at each display, visitors will learn the practices of farmers and how they learned by trial and error in order to establish themselves, grow, protect, and package crops such as oranges, lemons, walnuts and avocados. There is going to be a festival to honor the citrus farmers on April 18-22, so brush up on your La Habra history and check out the new exhibit.

The next exhibit that will be coming to the La Habra Historical Museum is “Old Businesses of La Habra” and the museum staff is looking for artifacts between the 1920s-1960s from anything from matchbooks to business cards and anything in between that fits the time frame of the exhibit.

If you have anything stored away that could benefit the exhibit or questions, feel free to call Suzette Eschberger at
