Founders of Brea

A statue in downtown Brea depicts a pioneer family that were the founders of this Southern California town. It stands in the parking lot of a CVS on the corner of Lambert and Brea Blvd.

[Mike pz, 05/19/2022]

Sculptor Carlos H. Terres, originally from Brea's sister city in Mexico, has several artworks around town. This one made more sense when the building behind it was a mission-style bank, but that structure was bulldozed in 2018.
