Cathedral City Mesothelioma


Cathedral City is a city in Riverside County, in the Coachella Valley in Southern California.  The Coachella Valley consists of several desert cities including, Cathedral City, Palm Springs, Coachella, Desert Hot Springs, Indian Wells, Indio, La Quinta, Palm Desert and Rancho Mirage. Cathedral City is 62.4 miles from Riverside, 116 miles from Los Angeles, and 126 miles from San Diego, CA.  



For thousands of years the Cahuilla people lived in southern California, including in the Cathedral City area. The territory of the Cahuilla ranges from the area near the Salton Sea up into the San Bernardino Mountains and San Gorgonio Pass.  Cahuilla Indians spoke Ivilyuat, which is a Uto-Aztecan language.   

The Agua Caliente Reservation was established in 1876,  but was not contiguous.  The reservation land was composed of alternating sections (640 acres) of land laid out across the desert in a checkerboard pattern.  The grid-like partitions resulted in a shared government role in Cathedral City.  The Agua Caliente Reservation tribal council governs in parts of Cathedral City where the reservation jurisdiction intersects.

Cathedral City lies within the Northwestern end of the Coachella Valley. It lies between the San Bernardino Mountains to the north, the San Jacinto Mountains to the south, with the San Gorgonia Pass to the west.  In 1852, United States Army Colonel Henry Washington was contracted by the government to survey Southern California, including the Coachella Valley. Colonel Washington found and named Cathedral Canyon because the rock formations in the Canyon resembled a Cathedral. Cathedral City took its name from the nearby Cathedral Canyon.

Before 1860, routes through the Coachella Valley to Arizona were ancient routes used by the Cahuilla Indians and other tribes.  On January 12, 1862, gold was discovered in the Arroyo De La Teneja, on the eastern bank of the Colorado River, near La Paz, Arizona (now Ehrenberg).  

William D. Bradshaw, a former Forty-Niner, sought a direct route to the newly discovered gold-fields.  In 1862, William Bradshaw with the help of Cabazon, a Cahuilla Chief and a Maricopa Indian from Arizona mapped out a route (known as the Bradshaw Trail) that passed through what is now Cathedral City, to the gold fields in Arizona.

The Bradshaw Trail ran from San Bernardino through the San Gorgonio Pass and Coachella Valley, past the Salton Sink (now the Salton Sea), and east to the Colorado River, where Bradshaw’s Ferry was offered to carry travelers across the river. Bradshaw established Stagecoach stations every 15-30 miles along the trail. 

Between 1862 and 1877, the Bradshaw Trail was the main stagecoach and wagon route between Southern California and the Gold Fields near La Paz, Arizona. The La Paz-Wikenburg Road linked the Bradshaw Trail to the Arizona territory and the mining regions.  In 1870, the Bradshaw Trail ended and La Paz, became a ghost town. Remnants of the Bradshaw Trail in California still exist.

In 1925, land developers purchased the land in Cathedral City and plotted out lots.  In about 1926, a well was dug and a storage tank with delivery lines was added in the new town.  Individual lots in Cathedral City were offered for sale on January 1, 1927.  In 1928, land developers built the first post office which utilized the town’s new name, Cathedral City.  

In the 1930s through the 1980s, Cathedral City was known for flamboyant nightclubs. In the 1930s, Al Wertheimer, a reputed mobster and member of the Purple Gang, owned the Dunes nightclub in Cathedral City and the legendary Clover Club on Sunset Blvd in Los Angeles. Both clubs were known for their extravagant décor, celebrity clientele and illicit gambling.

In 1981, Cathedral City incorporated. 

At the time of incorporation Cathedral City’s population was 14,700 but in 2022, the population grew to 52,494.
