Upland was incorporated in San Bernardino County on May 15, 1906, and developed into a residential and retail community that has maintained its country and urban ambiance. The city's colorful history goes back to the day in 1882 when George Chaffey gazed out over the beautiful valley, after making the trek from his native Canada to find a very special place for a new colony. Shoshone Indians were the region's primary residents.

The arrival of the Santa Fe Railroad from the east triggered a land boom in Upland in the 1880's and the area became known for quality citrus fruit. The Upland Lemon Growers Association was one of Upland's first companies to form. Upland's date of incorporation was 1906.

Upland's emergence as one of Southern California's most attractive residential communities came with the population boom that followed World War II. The warm and contagious spirit of its residents, the beauty of its landscape, the majesty of its mountainous skyline, the clemency of its weather, and the proximity to the Southland's many recreation and cultural attractions combined to convince newcomers that Upland was truly "The City of Gracious Living" as envisioned by those who settled here over a century ago.
