Get to know Upland, CA
The San Bernardino County city of Upland lies at the foot of the San Gabriel Mountains. It was originally an irrigation colony founded by George and William Chaffey in 1882. The rural town was an agriculture center, growing grapes and citrus fruits. It had been part of the Ontario colony and called North Ontario until in 1902 the name of Upland was used to refer to the northern part of the city. Upland separated from Ontario in 1906 and was incorporated as a city. Citrus growing thrived in Upland until the industry began to decline following World War II. As land prices exploded many growers sold their land to hungry developers. The top employers in Upland are the San Antonio Community Hospital and the Upland Unified School District. Popular attractions include the Madonna of the Trail, Historic Route 66, and Euclid Avenue.
