The History of Upland

Upland is located in San Bernardino County and was incorporated in 1906 after being separated from bordering city Ontario, CA.  Upland is located at the foot of Mount San Antonio (Mount Baldy), which is the highest peak in the San Gabriel Mountain Range at just over 10,000 ft. above sea level.  Upland was founded by the Chaffey brothers and is located in the path of the Old Spanish Trail, which led west to the San Gabriel Mission as far back as 1771.  Like much of the region, Upland was originally known for its citrus groves and also contained other fruit trees such as peaches, pears, apples and cherries.  San Antonio Hospital, located in Upland, was founded in 1907 and employs the largest number of employees in the city.  The Historic Route 66 runs through Upland and was formally known as the National Old Trails Road.  After World War II, land became much more valuable, causing citrus growers to sell their land to developers, leading to the formation of the city that we know today.

 

Upland's Famous Landmarks

Upland has several historic landmarks, including Madonna of the Trail, which is a statue at the intersection of Foothill Blvd and Euclid Ave.  There are twelve total such statues that mark the historic National Old Trails Road from Bethesda, Marlyand to Upland, CA.  Madonna of the Trail is the westernmost statue.

Euclid Avenue in Upland was added to the National Register of Historic Places in 2005.  In the center of the divided street is a walking trail lined with beautiful old trees, many over 100 years old, that is a favorite of locals for walks and jogs through the historic district of their city.

Upland is also home to the Grove Theatre, which was built in 1947 and hosts family friendly plays as it has since the very beginning.

Skateboarders have long loved Upland, as it once contained Pipeline Skatepark which is featured in the Skateboarding Hall of Fame.  Although Pipeline has been closed for many years, Memorial Skatepark has since opened and contains a full pipe, which is part of what made the original Pipeline Skatepark so legendary.

Special Events in Upland

Every year Upland hosts a Lemon Festival drawing crowds from all over the Inland Empire.  There is also an annual Christmas celebration that takes place in downtown Upland that includes a tree lighting and caroling!
