Olive Through the Ages takes a look at
the history of the community of Olive, California, from its days
as a pastoral community in the mid-1700s to the mid-1800s; to a
bustling 1880s boom town with a lucrative flour mill; to an orchard-filled
community with five citrus packing houses between the 1910s to the
1950s; to a residential island from the early 1960s to present times,
struggling to retain its name and identity amidst growing pressures
to incorporate into the City of Orange.
This Web site was created as a tribute to Olive, to make the public
aware of its existence, and to preserve its history.
At this site you can read about the history of Olive, take a tour
of the community and its surrounding region, peruse a timeline of
