History

The old mill, supposedly haunted, in historic downtown Murrieta.
The old mill, supposedly haunted, in historic downtown Murrieta.

For most of its history, Murrieta was not heavily populated. Its gently rolling hills dotted with native trees such as the now-threatened Engelmann Oak provided the perfect setting for a Spaniard by the name of Juan Murrieta to bring his flocks of over 100,000 sheep to the valley in 1873.

It didn't take long for others to discover the natural beauty of the valley, especially with a train depot built in 1882 that connected Murrieta to Southern California Railroad's transcontinental route. By 1890, a full 800 people called Murrieta home.

It is rumored that Don Juan Murrieta used the natural hot springs to relax and bathe his sheep, and eventually the hot springs became a focal point for the little town. Murrieta residents began to capitalize on the unique treasure by developing it into the Murrieta Hot Springs Resort, which began to attract visitors from all over the country. Today much of the site (about 50 acres) is home to a Bible college and conference center owned by Calvary Chapel Costa Mesa which has invested millions of dollars into restoring and rebuilding the old resort rooms over the last decade.

When the trains stopped running in 1935, the lifeblood of the town - tourists - were much harder to come by. The minor boom that Murrieta had experienced due to the train and the hot springs gradually died down, leaving Murrieta as a small country town. 

Although US 395 did pass through Murrieta, it wasn't until Interstate 15 was built through Murrieta in the early 1980s that another boom began to take hold. By the late 1980s, suburban neighborhoods were being constructed and people started to migrate to the Murrieta area from San Diego, Riverside, and Orange Counties. The population grew rapidly. 

In 1990, area residents began a campaign for cityhood that resulted in the establishment of the City of Murrieta on July 1, 1991. At that point the population had ballooned from just 2,200 in 1980 to 24,000.

Between 1991 and 2007, the city's population skyrocketed to and estimated 97,257 residents.

Murrieta once had an all-volunteer fire department for almost 40 years, but in 1987, it became a full-fledged municipal fire prevention district(the only one in all of southwestern Riverside County).The Murrieta Police Department was created in 1992(with the encouragement of then-Riverside County Sheriff Cois Byrd) in order to establish a truly municipal "feel" to a well-established community.

Education

The City of Murrieta is served by the Murrieta Valley Unified School District (MVUSD). The district contains eleven elementary (K-5) schools, three middle (6-8) schools, two comprehensive high (9-12) schools, Vista Murrieta High School and Murrieta Valley High School, one continuation school (Creekside High School), and one independent study school. Because of the explosive growth in the area, one elementary school, another middle school, and another high school are in the making. The Murrieta Valley School District boasts some of the top schools in the county of Riverside.

MURRIETA POLICE DEPARTMENT COMPLETE RIDE ACROSS AMERICA

Six officers and avid bicyclists from the Murrieta Police Department successfully completed a 2,529 mile bicycle trek across the United States. Rob Aberle, Eric Acda, Bob Davenport, Sean Hadden, John Nelson and Daryl Underwood began their journey on May 3, 2007, in Carlsbad, California by ceremoniously dipping their bike tires in the Pacific Ocean. The team finished in Brunswick, Georgia on May 30, by again dipping their tires in the Atlantic Ocean. The idea for the ride was formulated by John Nelson nearly a year ago, not only as a personal physical challenge and a team effort to promote camaraderie within the police department, but was primarily a grassroots effort to raise money for cancer research. The "Ride Across America" team was able to surpass their $15,000 fundraising goal by raising nearly $27,000 for the Lance Armstrong Foundation. The team also received many in-kind donations from local area businesses for staples and equipment, including I.E. Bikes, Richardson R.V., Cabo Pools, Subway Sandwiches, Sam’s Club, Costco, United Towing, and Precision Auto Electric.
