Chiques History Notes is a series of posts based on my research on Oxnard, CA.
In 1946, Coastal Valley Canning Company opened a plant at 510 East 3rd Street. A majority of La Colonia’s residents worked as seasonal workers at La Chileria.
They sold the company to Heublein in 1966. They moved the plant to 1500 East 3rd Street in 1976.
