For thousands of years before there were orange groves or railroads, the land known as Fullerton was a dynamic, ever-changing array of plants, animals, and people. Learn about prehistoric animals, suprisingly diverse ecosystems, and how early human residents made ise of the natural resources around them. Fossils, archeological artifacts, and historic maps and documents reveal this little-known story of the land we call home.
