Information about Perris, California

The Perris Valley

Perris CA. is located along side Hyw 74 and the old 395 (Now the 215) Highway 74 continues east to it leaves the 215 and heads for Hemet.

My Mom went to Perris High School back in 40's. Back then Perris was home to around 1200 people. My grandfather Daniel S. Hall, helped build most of the Produce and Packing sheds that have long since been replaced for the most part. And He built them with just one leg, having lost his leg in a accident in 1910.

Although we operate selected PE cars throughout the year, this is the weekend when we have the largest group of them out to ride and photograph.Father’s Day BBQ Picnic in the Park will be Sunday, June 17th (separate reservation and ticket purchase required for Father’s Day BBQ).
