History & History Related Items

One of the early white settlers was Isaac Smith and family. He built a ranch which was later used as a stagecoach stop. It evolved into a small hotel for people passing through. In 1884, the property was bought by a Los Angeles company which built a larger hotel there. They named it Highland Home. Nearby Banning and Beaumont began to develop and the area continued to grow. After the railroad came into the area in the late 1800's, more people moved here. Many cherry trees were planted in the Highland Ranch area which later led to the naming of the region Cherry Valley.
