A Brief History of Upland's Modern Growth

Upland's first modern neighborhoods were established in 1906 by George and William Chaffey near territory that was used by the Spanish government and Catholic missionaries to establish San Gabriel Mission in the 1770s. They were located near irrigation lines that were used to grow citrus fruits and table-quality grapes. These industries produced over 20 percent of the world's citrus fruit supply during the 1930s.
Interest in Upland's modern homes for sale was established in the 1920s after motorists discovered the area's peaceful surroundings and tree-lined neighborhoods. This interest was revived after World War II after many U.S. Army soldiers discovered Upland's location near the greater Los Angeles area's largest military bases.
Upland's development as a modern city began in the late 1950s after a section of Interstate 10 connected Upland to the Los Angeles area's largest transportation hubs. This development was nurtured in the 1960s and 1970s by the development of several successful retail and medical service industries.
Upland is now a modern city that offers homebuyers who contact Jeannette Ewing via email many valuable amenities including a fantastic public school system, low crime rates, many historic neighborhoods and access to one of San Bernardino's largest shopping districts.
