The city of Yucaipa lies in the foothills of the San Bernardino Mountains in Southern California, in San Bernardino County. Yucaipa is 18 miles to San Bernardino city, 23 miles from Riverside, 39 miles from Palm Springs and 69 miles from Los Angeles. According to the United States Census Bureau 2022 data, Yucaipa’s population is estimated at 54,420 residents. 



The Yucaiopa Valley was the territory of the Serrano Indians, a peaceful people belonging to the Shoshonean division of the Uto-Aztec linguistic group. This group included the Utes and Utah, the Hopi of Arizona, the Aztecs of Mexico and the Cahuillas of California.

The Serrano Indians lived in the area for thousands of years before the Spanish Missionaries arrived in the 1700s. 

The Serrano tribes ancestral home encompassed most of Southern California.  Yucaipa’s name is from the Guachama dialect and means ‘wet or marshy land.’  The Guachama Indians spoke a Serrano dialect of Shoshonean.  The Spaniards called the natives in the area Serrano which translates as mountaineers or highlanders.

 Yucaipa was home to the largest irrigation system west of the Mississippi. In the early 1800’s the Serrano and Cahuilla Indians built the oldest engineered irrigation channel  known as the “Zanja” in San Bernardino County.  The Zanja played a critical role in the development of the Inland Empire and paved the way for the San Gabriel Mission to develop the “Estancia.

The Yucaipa area was settled for hundreds of years before it incorporated as a city in 1989.  Yucaipa lies on part of the old Rancho San Bernardino Mexican Land Grant awarded to Antonio Maria Lugo by the Mexican Governor Juan B. Alvarado in 1842.  Early on, Rancho San Bernardino was used for sheep grazing and agriculture, including growing alfalfa and grains. 

The Southern Pacific and Atchison, Topeka and Santa Fe Railroads arrived in the 1880s, increasing the population and land expansion in the area. The railroad recruited Chinese labor to build the railroad which led to Chinese farmers that grew and sold fruit and vegetables to the town.

In the mid-19th century, the United States government established reservations to remove indigenous people from their ancestral homelands. The Yucaipa Rancheria was established in 1851, and the Serrano people from Yucaipa and surrounding areas were forcibly relocated to this reservation.  The Rancheria reservation was small and the indigenous people struggled to survive on the land.  The Rancheria is marked by California Historical Landmark #620.

In the late 1800s, Yucaipa developed apple orchards which they still produce today.  In the early 1900s, Yucaipa developed large ranches and farming became more dominant.  When apple prices dropped during the Great Depression, Yucaipa’s agricultural community branched out and produced peaches, citrus and grains.  Also, oil was discovered in Yucaipa in the early 1900s, which resulted in oil workers moving into the area.  

World War II brought many changes to the area.  Agricultural land was transformed for residential and business use.  Yucaipa also invested in more infrastructure, including building more roads, flood control systems and financed an electrical power expansion.  The city also built many mobile home parks resulting in a number of senior citizens relocating to the area.  Residential construction continued thought the 1970-1980s.  In the 1980s, Yucaipa’s population increased with many families with children that took advantage of the new single-family housing developments.

Yucaipa ultimately incorporated as a city on November 27, 1989.  Yucaipa is a vibrant city with a small town feel. Yucaipa has reserved open spaces and trails, and supports recreational activities, including 14 parks.  In the 1990s, Wildwood Canyon State Park was established.  Yucaipa also has preserved thousands of acres with the development of Crafton Hills Conservancy.
