Grand Terrace history:

Here is a history page for Grand Terrace.

The first settlers came when they received Mexican land grants between 1830 and 1840. The area did not initially boom, with only nine buildings in the area by 1876. The area we now know as Grand terrace was known in the late 1800's as East Riverside. The creation of the 20+ mile long Gage Canal around this time helped to bring usable water to the area from the Santa Ana River. When there was plenty of water available for irrigation, the city quickly became an agricultural community, particularly known for their citrus fruit. When many of the groves were destroyed in the big freeze of 1913, trees were replaced by walnut trees and peach trees, both of which could withstand cold much better than the citrus. In the beginning the name for the area was just "the Terrace." But the word, "Grand," was added around 1898 because of the beautiful view from most areas of the city.
