Although Artesia has a relatively small populace, it boasts an international cultural district. Known as Little India, the district includes Indian clothing outlets, jewelry shops, beauty salons, and restaurants. Perhaps the most well-known landmark in the city is the Artisia Water Tower, which the city is currently trying to declare a Historical Landmark. The water tower capacity is 50,000 gallons of water. Once owned by the Southern California Water Company, the tower now belongs to the city of Artesia following its purchase in 1988. A community icon, the tower was immediately painted, and the name “Artesia” was added to both sides of the tower and can still be seen today. The water tower has even reached celebrity status after being featured in the movie, and in an episode of My Name is Earl in 2006.

It is moisture that mold loves, and it will proceed to flourish and cause problems for both the building and the occupants alike.
