PERRIS, CALIFORNIA OVERVIEW
Over 80,000 people call the city of Perris home. It is located in California’s “Inland Empire” in Riverside County and encompasses just over 31 square miles. Perris was incorporated on May 26, 1911. Perris began as a quiet farming town on the California Southern Railroad line.
The area was originally inhabited by the Luiseno also known as the Pechanga Indians. To the east of Perris were the Cahuilla Indians. Indian artifacts, including tools, pottery and rock art have been found in Riverside County.
In the 1850s, Mexican miners discovered gold in the nearby hills of Perris. The Good Hope mine was a few miles from Perris and opened in 1869. The Good Hope mine was Southern California’s top producing mine. It produced over $2 million in gold (in the dollars of the time), and was one third of all gold produced in Southern California. The area near Perris was also mined for tin and coal. At the time, the mines made or broke many Perris settlers fortunes.
Perris is named for Fred T. Perris , a chief engineer of the California Southern Railroad. He studied a proposal for a rail line from Perris to San Diego. The town won the new line when it offered to build the rail depot, construct a well for water for the depot and donate parcels of land to the railroad company. The Perris passenger and freight station became official in April 1886, and numerous settlers came to the valley asserting homestead claims. However, due to flooding the inland route between Perris and the San Diego rail line was abandoned in favor of the more viable Surf Line. Perris, however, remained directly connected to the Transcontinental Railroad to the north.
Perris was a farming and agricultural town. It began growing grain crops in the 1880s and ultimately became known for growing White Rose potatoes in the 1940s. Today, Perris is known as the largest skydiving Center in North America. It’s also known for hot air ballooning. Its man-made Lake Perris provides boating, fishing, camping, hiking and other activities. The San Bernardino national Forest is nearby and so is Palm Springs.
Perris is part of the Riverside-San Bernardino-Ontario Metropolitan Statistical Area which is comprised of Riverside and San Bernardino counties, and is called the “Inland Empire.” The area is bordered by Los Angeles and Orange counties on the west, and on the east by the states of Nevada and Arizona. The 2022 population estimate for the Riverside-San Bernardino-Ontario Metropolitan Statistical Area is over 4.6 million people.
