The Fuller family was heavily involved in the local farming industry. Glenwood (1878 – 1951), Celesta (1879 – 1935), and their two sons, Austin (1904 – 1996) and Mort (1912 – Unknown), were farmers at their property in Redman.
The Fuller’s were known for their development of the “Antelope Melon”, a type of cantaloupe, which they grew on their 30-acre farm. During the 1930s, these delicious and meaty melons were sold to markets across the Antelope Valley and were served at the best restaurants and hotels throughout Los Angeles.
