       The United States Government established an experimental station in the city of Fontana, in March, 1928. It ran until 1965. It was the first and only station devoted to the breeding and raising of rabbits. Several new breeds of rabbits were created as well as new techniques of rabbit care pioneered at the Fontana site, which is now the Josephine Knoph Senior Citizens Center of Fontana.
