Pitzer College Photo #2 - Originally built as the home of a Claremont citrus grower, the Grove House was saved from potential demolition by moving it to the Pitzer College campus. In 1977, it was moved north of Mead Hall. Here at Pitzer, the house has had a new lease on life, serving as a campus social center.
