Renwick House

Nikon D7000 18-200mm @ 26mm ISO 200 3- bkts f/11 Lr4, HEP2, TpzSim; PsCS6

After ten years of marriage and the death of her husband, Helen Goodwin Renwick left Iowa and brought her son to Claremont, California.  Mrs. Renwick then built her house in 1900 where she raised her son and became a philanthropist to Pomona College.  Mrs. Renwick died at the age of 86 in July, 1930, bequeathing her home to Pomona College.  From the obituary published July 31, 1930 in the Claremont Courier  I found this charming line about Mrs. Renwick:

Following a romance of unusual charm she was married to William Renwick in 1879 and together they enjoyed their home and a companionship in Davenport, Iowa for 10 years.

The Renwick House now serve as the offices of the Pomona College Annual Giving department.

This was the home of the Carlton Seaver family and was originally constructed on a site at Holt and Garey Avenue in Pomona, California in 1900.  All of Carlton Seaver’s children a attended Pomona College, Mr. and Mrs. Seaver  and subsequent generations of the Seaver family have been major donors to Pomona College.  The Seaver house was willed to the college by Carlton Seaver’s widow and moved to its current site on the campus of Pomona College at 305 Campus Avenue, Claremont, California.  Seaver House now serves as the location of the Pomona College Alumni Relations Office.
