Beautifully engraved certificate from the Covina Citrus Association issued in 1902. This historic document has an ornate border around it. This item is hand signed by the company’s president and secretary and is over 98 years old. At the turn of the century, Covina was mostly orange groves. Covina, California is nestled at the foot of the San Gabriel Mountains, about 20 miles east of Los Angeles, in the heart of the San Gabriel Valley. Intimate and neighborly, the Covina Downtown still retains the atmosphere that it enjoyed during its days as the center of a small city whose motto was once "A Mile Square and All There." Safe, stable neighborhoods dotted with parks and friendly neighbors. A deep tradition of community events. A jewel of a traditional downtown. A sense of place, of pride, of prosperous solidity. Covina, the historic center of the east San Gabriel Valley, is California the way things used to be. Covina is a community of homeowners. The great majority of housing is single family detached, and homes are 58 percent owner occupied. Homes are affordable, as the median value is just over $200,000 with the median mortgage payment at $1,091 per month. Housing options range from affordable to executive homes. There are eight major parks, two softball facilities and one neighborhood pocket park, in the city of just seven square miles. Covina is a low density community with an ideal mix of land uses, slightly over 45% of the city is housing. There are four major retail areas, three sizable industrial areas, an office park and an office high rise. Covina is served by the Inter-Community Medical Center, Charter Oak Hospital, and Magan Medical Clinic. But the numbers don't paint a full picture. For that you need to see the faces of the children at the annual Christmas Parade on Citrus Avenue, the third largest holiday parade in Southern California.
