History & History Related Items

Temecula history:

The original residents of the valley were the Pechanga, a tribe of American Indians. The first known European to discover the valley was Father Juan Norberto de Santiago, in October 1797, while seeking a site for a new mission. Temecula was one of the stops on the route of the Butterfield Stage and in 1859 became the location of the seventh post office in California. The first post office was in San Francisco.

During the later 1900's, a developer tried to change the name of the area to Rancho California, but when Temecula became a city, voters stuck with the old town name which came from Luiseno. The name's meaning varies, but includes "that place where the sun breaks through and shines on the white mist."

The I-15 corridor between Los Angeles County and San Diego was completed in the early 1980's and the subdivision land boom began. When Rancho California/Temecula incorporated in December, 1989, the citizens voted to officially name their city "Temecula".
