Riverside County, California was founded in 1893. Riverside was named after its location beside the Santa Ana River. Riverside County is well known for being the birthplace of the California citrus industry. In 1874, Eliza Tibbets received from a friend three Brazilian navel orange trees, coming from Bahia, Brazil. These kind of trees didn’t thrive in Florida, but they were very successful in the southern California area.

The Riverside County region was originally populated by the Cahuilla, Gabrielino, Serrano, Luise’o, Chemehuevi, and Mojave tribes, including also, the urban Indians who moved here in the 20th century. These tribes engaged with other Californian tribes of Native Americans including coastal people, in trading plants, steatite (soapstone), objects made from steatite, olive shell beads that served as money and other animals products.
