ONTARIO, CALIFORNIA OVERVIEW
The city of Ontario is in Southern California, in San Bernardino County. It is well known for its airport, the Ontario International Airport, which is located 35 miles east of Los Angeles and 23 miles west of San Bernardino city. According to the 2020 census, Ontario has over 175,000 residents.
The indigenous people were the Tongva Indians who settled in the Ontario region thousands of years before the Europeans arrived. In 1810, the Spanish established the mission of San Gabriel Archangel. In 1882, George Chaffee and his brother William Chaffee purchased 8000 acres of land and water rights in the Ontario area. They established the Ontario Model Colony Development, and named the development after their home province in Ontario, Canada. The Model Colony was ingenious as it provided land buyers with shares in the water company, which solved settlers major concerns regarding access to water in western settlements.
Ontario was incorporated as a city in 1891. In 1906, North Ontario broke away, and became Upland, California. Nonetheless, over the years the city of Ontario increased in size, and now totals 50 square miles. In the 1920’s, Latimer Field was established. Ontario played a key role in World War II, establishing several military bases, the General Electric plant and factories in the area, as well as, the site for training pilots for the Lockheed P-38, Lightning twin-boom fighter.
Ontario is known for its dairy farming and agricultural economy, including lemon and orange groves, vitners and Olive growers. The Graber Olive House which still produces olives, is a historical landmark and one of the oldest institutions in Ontario. Ontario has continued to grow and is a major center for manufacturing, services and transportation. It is home to major distribution centers, including AutoZone, Cardinal Health, MBM, Genuine Parts/NAPA and Nordstrom.
