Price: $89 Per Person

Take a step back in time on this driving tour led by a step-on guide from the Pomona Historical Society. One of the oldest cities in Southern California, Pomona is celebrating 100 years of heritage preservation. On a docent-guided tour of a prominent adobe, you’ll see how it appeared 150 years ago, complete with the furnishings of the period that create one of the finest collections of the “early days.” Also, enjoy a guided tour of the Phillips Mansion, an excellent example of a Second Empire-style historic house. Owned in the 1890’s by the “wealthiest man in L.A. County,” it was saved from the wrecking ball in 1966 and has recently been restored. Also experience a docent-guided tour of the American Museum of Ceramic Art which is focused exclusively on the art of clay and was founded here due to the area’s rich ceramic and arts tradition. While various styles and traditions of ceramic art are on view, a highlight is the Mettlach Collection – pottery founded in 1836 in Mettlach, Germany by François Boch that merged with another founded by Nicolas Villeroy, to form the famous ceramic company called Villeroy & Boch. This collection of steins plaques, vases, jardinières, table wares, and more was made possible by a couple who accumulated a huge number of these renowned German pieces (dated 1840-1915) over a 30-year period and is the largest of its kind in the world! Enjoy an included buffet lunch at the Cal Poly Pomona campus’ Kellogg West restaurant and a visit to the campus Farm Store to purchase fresh produce and local products. An included sweet treat from a local favorite pie shop tops off our day.
