Lemon Grove Bail Bonds

Bail Bonds in Lemon Grove

Once a part of the Mission San Diego de Alcala, the land that would eventually become Lemon Grove, CA was purchased in 1850 by Robert Allison, a land developer and stockholder in the San Diego and Cuyamaca Railroad. In 892, Robert Allison’s son, Joseph, drew up a plan for subdividing the part of his father’s land. He named the area “Lemon Grove,” as the warm, Mediterranean climate was ideal for growing citrus and other fruits. Soon, Lemon Grove drew dozens of farmers to cultivate subtropical fruits and vegetables in the area’s fertile soil. In 1894, the San Diego Union newspaper referred to Lemon Grove as a “sea of lemon trees.” 

The World’s Biggest Lemon

Weighing over 3,000 pounds, the world’s largest lemon welcomes visitors to Lemon Grove. Built as a parade float for the 1928 Fourth of July parade, the plastered sculpture is now placed near the trolley station, in front of a small lemon grove in downtown Lemon Grove. As a float, the large lemon carried the very first “Miss Lemon Grove,” sixteen-year-old Amorita Treganza. Today, with the proclamation “Best Climate on Earth” emblazoned across the base, the sculpture is meant to honor the cities roots in agriculture and represent the “purpose, prosperity, and optimism” of the City of Lemon Grove.

Lemon Grove Incident of 1931

Years before the Supreme Court would rule on school segregation in the South, Lemon Grove dealt with their own bout of civil rights unrest when members of the local school board decided to build a separate school for Mexican American students. However, the Superior Court of San Diego County ruled against school segregation, the first ruling of its kind in the country.

The City of Lemon Grove

Today, the City of Lemon Grove covers 3.9 square miles and is home to just over 27,000 residents.
