History & History Related Items

On 8 March 2011, the voters in this area approved the merging of Glen Avon, Rubidoux, Mira Loma, Pedley and Sunnyslope into one new city, Jurupa Valley. The newest city in the state became an incorporated city on 1 July 2011. Our pages for the previous cities will remain online but will not be updated. All information will be included on the new page for Jurupa Valley as well as any new information for the brand new city.

This area was originally part of the Rancho Cucamonga Valley with the Mira Loma area becoming a portion of the Jurupa Valley more recently. Once known as Wineville, the name was changed to Mira Loma, which means "view of the hills," after the Wineville Chicken Murders of the late 1920's. Local residents wanted to get away from the publicity of the name of Wineville after the murders took place in the Schleisman/Wineville area.

In the early 1930's, the dairymen and wineries began to develop here. Now, there are few dairies and wineries left. Galleano Winery is the main one left in the area.

See this history page on the history of Mira Loma.

In 1882, Mira Loma was known as Stalder. Then in sequence, it was known as Mountain View, Pleasant Valley, Union, Union Joint and finally Wineville. It was changed in 1931 to Mira Loma by which it is still known today.
