The citrus orchards that once covered Glendora might be gone, but you still find a few representative trees peeking out from neighborhoods of this suburban bedroom community, situated in the eastern San Gabriel Valley between the cities of Azusa and San Dimas.
This city of about 50,000 residents has a highly-regarded public education system, Glendora Unified School District, as well as an extremely diverse selection of residences. In Glendora you’ll find ranch-style homes, bungalows dating to the early 20th century and many large, mansion-style homes as well as exclusive areas such as Morgan Ranch, Silent Ranch, Oakhart Estates and Easley Canyon Estates.
There’s also the members-only Glendora Country Club, which features an 18-hole golf course and offers membership by invitation only.
Founded in 1887 by George Whitcomb, the town’s name both honors his wife Leadora and the notion that this town is situated in a lush glen – thus “Glendora.” Numerous annual events in the city’s downtown area and at nearby parks have helped to maintain Glendora’s identity as the “pride of the foothills” and for preserving a small village-like suburb that is only 23 miles from downtown Los Angeles. Another point of pride for the town is historic Route 66, which also runs through the city.
Along with the 210 Foothill Freeway, an extension of the Metrolink commuter Gold Line light rail system is also expected to eventually run through Glendora: It will offer another way of connecting commuters from this cozy, unique suburb with surrounding communities.
