LAKE ELSINORE, CALIFORNIA OVERVIEW
Lake Elsinore is a city in Riverside County in Southern California. The United States Census data from 2022, estimates 71,898 residents in the city. Lake Elsinore is 17 miles from Temecula, 32 miles from the city of Riverside, 52 miles from San Bernardino, and 70 miles from Los Angeles. Spanish ranchers and American Trappers lived in the Lake Elsinore area in the 1800s. When Lake Elsinore incorporated as a city on April 20, 1888, it was in San Diego County. After Riverside County was formed in 1893, Lake Elsinore became a part of Riverside County.
The Temecula Valley was inhabited for thousands of years by the Pechanga Band of Luiseno Indians which consists of the Pechanga, Pauma, Pala, Rincon, San Luis Rey, La Jolla and Soboba Indians. They called themselves the Payomkawichum which means “The People of the West.” Many Indian artifacts, including tools, pottery and pictographs on rocks have been found in Riverside County and in the surrounding counties. In 1798, the Spanish Friars founded Mission San Luis Rey de Francia and called the native Indians the Luisenos.
In 1821, Mexico gained independence from Spain. In 1847, during the Mexican-American war the Temecula Massacre occurred, when Mexico retaliated for the death of 11 Mexican soldiers in Pauma (the Pauma Massacre). The Mexican soldiers retaliated and killed hundreds of Temecula Indians.
In 1844, Julian Manriquez secured the land grant of Rancho La Laguna. In 1848, Mexico ceded California to the United States. In 1858, Augustin Machado purchased Rancho La Laguna and built an adobe home on the property. Subsequently, the Machado home was used as a relay station for mail and passengers on the historic Butterfield Overland Mail Route. In 1883, Machado sold the Rancho to Franklin Heald, one of the founders that established the foundation for the city of Lake Elsinore on the old Rancho La Laguna land grant.
In the 1800s’ Lake Elsinore’s economy was based on coal, clay, gold mining, ranching and agriculture. The Good Hope mine in the area operated for 90 years and produced two million dollars of gold. The town was also serviced by the railroad.
At incorporation in 1888, the city was named Elsinore. In 1972, the residents voted to change the name to Lake Elsinore. Lake Elsinore is a natural freshwater lake in the city of Elsinore. The lake has fluctuated from huge dry spells, stagnation and massive flooding. Lake Elsinore has gone dry several times and was refilled in 1938 and in the 1960s. In 1981 and 1983, Lake Elsinore severely flooded and destroyed homes and businesses. A multi-million-dollar water project was constructed to prevent the lake from flooding, protect the fish, prevent algal blooms and to maintain a consistent and safe water level. The project was successful and permitted houses to be built near the lake.
In the early 19th century Lake Elsinore was a popular destination for Hollywood celebrities, which included Bela Lugosi who was famous for his Dracula character. Many celebrities built houses in Lake Elsinore, including Aimee Semple McPherson’s castle.
In 1964, Lake Elsinore elected Thomas R. Yarborough, the first African-American Mayor in California. Today, Lake Elsinore is a residential community and known for boating, wind surfing, swimming, fishing and skydiving. It is also known for biking and hiking activities.
