AmericaJR’s Jason Rzucidlo recently visited Cal Poly Pomona to check out the W.K. Kellogg House. Offering sweeping views and rich architectural accents, W.K. Kellogg’s West Coast retreat, Kellogg House, was built in 1926 and cost $150,000. The home, which sits atop a tree-shrouded hill on the northern edge of campus, was designed by renowned architect Myron Hunt, whose projects included the Pasadena Rose Bowl and the Huntington Library. When the Kellogg family invited guests, the home was a  magnet  for celebrities of their day, including former President Ronald Reagan, Walt Disney, Will Rogers, Rudolph Valentino, Gary Cooper and Charles Lindbergh.  

Visit the Kellogg House at 3801 West Temple Avenue, Building 112 Pomona, CA 91768. For more info, go to https://www.cpp.edu/aboutcpp/heritage/kellogg-house-pomona.shtml
