History & History Related Items

First inhabitants of the area were the Luiseno and Pechanga Indian tribes. Early settlers were farmers. Some mining began in the 1880's when a quartz lode was discovered by a miner named Luther Menifee Wilson. The city was named for this man. The development of the Senior complex of homes called Sun City began in the early 1960's. From that time, the area continued to grow and expand from the Senior housing to other residential and commercial activity.

The residents of Menifee, Sun City and Quail Valley voted on 3 June 2008 to incorporate and merge the three communities. It also includes Paloma Valley and portions of Romoland. This took effect on 1 October 2008.
