Pitzer Heritage Circle

Pitzer Heritage circle

An ambitious grounds improvement program of landscaping, paving, curbing and guttering was initiated in the early 1970's. Work was also begun on Heritage Circle, an area near the fairgrounds lake set aside to highlight the cultural history of the State. One of the first Heritage Circle projects was an authentic 18th century school house donated in 1975.
