"There is romance in the Valley. It's been said that the citrus and the palms give it that romance. It also comes from the natural hospitality of its people. An article in 1924 noted; "the openhanded hospitality with which newcomers are greeted, the ever willingness to aid them in getting established and advising them ... are phases of the older settlers activities that vie in generosity with those of any community in the world". These older settlers certainly found romance in the orange trees growing to "magnificent height" along the river."
