Author: Alice Eby Hall Genre:

San Bernardino, California’s rural community of Devore was named for John A. Devore, vice president of Chicago’s Kenwood Assn., railroad uniform supplier. This book is replete with old photographs, memories, and historical research from the 1800s of the Southern Portal of Cajon Pass. The Devore Farm drew the elite from Pasadena to its parks for concerts until the 1938 flood rearranged the topography.

    Hi Alice,

    We were in contact some time ago about Devore. While browsing online I found this link to your DeVore scrapbook. I would like to order a copy of your book (if still available) and the PDF. Would you let me know where to send the payment please. Thank you! Hope all is well with you!

    Hi Alice, I live in Devore, can you tell me the difference in the book and Disk, and if I can pick up the book my self, so I can save the shipping.

    • Alice says:

      Hi, Ruth,
      The book is $30. The disk is $12. Both are PDF format. The disk version contains all the updates that have been in the Devore Newsletter as well as the original text. The disk also includes the Devore Church history and Echoes of Eden. Since you live in Devore, there would be no shipping charge. I could bring it to your house or leave it at Mom’s Store for you to pick up.
