SANTA PAULA FARMWORKER MONUMENT

The Santa Paula Farmworker Monument is the first of its kind in this country. It is dedicated to all present and past farmworkers and other agricultural workers from all ethnicities and diverse nationalities who continue to give of their labor to plant, tend, harvest and distribute fruits and vegetables to our global community. Santa Paula has an agricultural heritage dating back to the 19th century. The City, under the leadership of the Hispanic-American community, raised the money to build a memorial to honor that heritage.
