Charlie Chaplin and Paulette Goddard found Avalon to be a wonderful romantic getaway and spent a great deal of time on the island in the Thirties and Forties.
The Island Company was founded in 1894 by the Banning Brothers. The company was then purchased by William Wrigley, Jr. in 1919 with hopes of turning Catalina Island into a world-class resort destination. Descendants of the Wrigley family still own the Island Company today and continue to build on and enhance the vision of William Wrigley, Jr. We invite you to learn more about the Santa Catalina Island Company and it's long history as a first class resort company.
