Cabazon was incorporated as a city in 1955. In 1972, due to years of scandal, political instability, and stalled growth, the citizens of Cabazon voted to disincorporate the city. Cabazon thus became the first and, so far, only community to give up cityhood in Riverside County. 
Cabazon is the home of the Morongo Band of Mission Indians and their massive Casino Morongo, whose 27-story hotel tower dominates the San Gorgonio Pass. It is one of the largest Native American casinos in the United States.
Claude Bell's dinosaurs are icons of roadside America - some people may remember them from Pee-wee's Big Adventure, while others have grown up with them along the highway in southern California. The dinosaurs were purchased in 2005 from the Bell family for $1.2 million USD by Christian developers. 
A huge water-bottling facility was established by Arrowhead Mountain Springwater (in partnership with the Morongo Band of Mission Indians) on the eastern edge on Cabazon.
