History and culture

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 Town Center, an open air mall in the downtown area at the intersection of 9th St. and 2nd Ave, 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. It reopened on October 22, 1993.

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