FONTANA, CALIFORNIA OVERVIEW
Fontana is in San Bernadino County California, located around 50 miles east of Los Angeles. There are over 213,000 residents according to the 2020 census, making it the second largest city in San Bernardino County. the City has been called “the crossroads of the Inland Empire”
Fontana was once part of the Rancho San Bernardino land grant. The community had strong agrarian roots and was originally known as Rosena. As many as 55,000 hogs lived in southern Fontana between the 1920s and 1950. The U.S. Rabbit Experimental Station, the only facility in the country devoted to research on rabbits, for both meat and fur, was established in Fontana in 1928 and operated until 1965.
During the war years Fontana was transformed into an industrial center with the opening of a large integrated steel mill. Kaiser Steel was founded by Henry J. Kaiser. The plant’s first blast furnace, “Bess No. 1” was named after Kaiser’s wife, and the first steel plate was produced in August 1943. Kaiser Fontana aided the war effort by suppling the rolled steel plates needed to build Liberty and Victory ships. The facility produced about 75 million tons of steel over its history. Kaiser Steel employed thousands of Fontana residents until its closure in 1984.
A racetrack was built on the former site of the Kaiser Steel mill. Auto Club Speedway, hosts the NASCAR Cup Series and Xfinity Series, and other events. The large smelting furnaces of the mill were sold to China, and the rest remains a working steel mill operated by California Steel Industries.
Fontana is at the intersection of many busy state highways and serves as a regional hub of the trucking industry. It is home to product distribution centers for many large national companies, including the Home Shopping Network, Weyerhaeuser, Mercedes-Benz and Toyota.
