Summary

Significance: Originally constructed in 1898, the National Orange Company Packing House is the oldest continuously operated packing house in Riverside. While other establishments have moved towards increased mechanization in the processing of the fruit, the National Orange Company continues to utilize vintage 1920s and 1930s machinery, relying on historically established means of preparing, packaging and shipping citrus products.
