Rohr Fullerton, California
Architectural Division



The town of Fullerton
In anticipation of the California Central Railroad in 1887 brothers Edward and George Amerige purchased 390 acres from the Miles Estate. The Ameriges negotiated with George H. Fullerton to have the Santa Fe run through Northam Station to Fullerton. The town was named Fullerton in honor of the brother's new associate. Forty more acres were purchased and by the summer of 1887 the town consisted of 49 blocks or almost 1000 business and residential lots and 67 farm lots. By 1950, the population of Fullerton had reached 13,958, and by 1963 the population had climbed to 66,426 (Parker and Parker, 1965, p. 59, 84).
