Yucaipa Historical Society

History tells us the Serrano-Cahilla Indians were the first inhabitants of the valley.


The museum takes you back to an 1842 land grant established by Antonio Mara Lugo and the pioneers who followed and settled in the valley.


In 1910 a big land sale changed the valley into an apple and grain producing mecca. The weather proved to warm for the apples and peaches replaced them. In the early 40's the peach trees were pulled and the valley was discovered for its beauty, weather and comfortable living qualities and was replaced with homes for many senior citizens.


Postmasters, early churches, schools, homes, businesses and the war years are but few of the exhibits.


Personalities like Stater Brothers, Spider Women, Congressman Harry Sheppard and many more memorabilia of earlier years.


We look forward to your visit
