Claremont Heritage, a local non-profit dedicated to historic preservation, has an ongoing project to complete Neighborhood Histories for every neighborhood in Claremont. This one, for the Claraboya neighborhood, is number eight.

The Claraboya neighborhood, as defined in the Claremont General Plan, includes Claraboya proper, the High Point (not Highpoint) Condominiums, and the Armstrong Addition (San Angelo, Napa Court, and two lots on Espirito Santos). Its first tract map (to subdivide land into lots) was approved in 1962 and its last tract map was approved ten years later. It developed with homes over a 35-year period, with most homes built during the first 15 years.
