This year’s 34th annual Claremont Heritage home tour featured homes in the Via Zurita neighborhood near Claremont High School. The home tour was held on Sunday, October 9, and featured five unique homes with docent-lead tours. The Clokey/Lowe house was designed by architect Peter Ficker and built by local master-builder Clarence Stover in 1928 for Pomona College music professor Joseph Clokey and his wife. Professor Clokey was widely known as a popular composer of church music, but today is better known as the father of Art Clokey, the creator of Gumby.
