History and culture

Upland in 1906.

Upland originally was an irrigation colony established by George and William Chaffey. When founded, it was a small rural town based on agriculture, specifically citrus fruits and grapes.

Present-day Upland maintains many of the same features, most specifically Euclid Avenue, the north-south, tree-lined street that runs through town, as well as many of the older, adobe and ranch-style houses.

Other features of Upland include Upland High School, Old Baldy Brewery in downtown Upland, a brewery in the tradition of old craft-brewed ales, and a clear view of Mount Baldy. The city also was home to the Pipeline skate park, which opened in 1977 and closed in 1988.

Upland has two sister cities: Mildura, Victoria, Australia and Caborca, Sonora, Mexico.
