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.
