For thousands of years, the people of Southern California have enjoyed the best things life has to offer, and that is especially true for the city of Yucaipa, located along traditional trade trails in the foothills of the San Bernardino Mountains between the valley of San Bernardino, the mountains, and the desert. It was not only a historic gathering place, but also a home to the predecessors who lived in the village of Yu’kai’pat. This sun-kissed land is rich in natural resources, with plenty of water and vegetation that provides for people and wild animals alike. The bounty of the land provided the nickname “Breadbasket of Southern California” in the 1800s and the “Egg Basket” during the 20th century. The people of Yucaipa take pride in living in a real hometown with good schools, a college, and sports programs. Residents also see to the protection of their wildlife neighbors with a state park, a county regional park, 11 city parks, and a trails system for everyone to enjoy the great outdoors.

Review:

Title: Yucaipa history book picks up where first book left off

Author: Penny E. Schwartz

Publisher: The Press-Enterprise

Date: 4/11/2010
How things changed in the San Bernardino County community of Yucaipa from the 1940s to 1980s is the subject of the book "Arcadia Images of America."
That period chronicles the area's development from a small town into a full-fledged city during the middle years of the 20th century. The book is a sequel to "Yucaipa, California" published by Arcadia 2½ years ago.
The earlier volume began with the area's native peoples and covered the years through the 1950s.
"When we wrote the first book, we wanted to tell the city's history chronologically," said Claire Marie Teeters, who compiled both volumes along with members of the Yucaipa Valley Historical Society.
They ran out of room, so they included only a minimal representation of the 1940s and '50s, said Teeters, editor of the Yucaipa/Calimesa News-Mirror newspaper.
The first book was published in April 2007. A second volume was dependent on sales of the first, the publisher told society members.
"The book sold so well that Arcadia called about a year and a half ago and said we could do a second book," Teeters said.
The new volume, published last December, chronicles the years from the 1940s through incorporation in November 1989.
"If the book could have a subtitle, it would be 'The Good Old Days,' " Teeters said. "It's a happy book."
She credits members of the historical society as well as many townspeople for supplying the hundreds of photographs that fill the book with images of Yucaipa's past.
"We got the word out to the community, and many people brought in photos that we didn't have," she said.
During the period covered by the new volume, the city morphed from an agricultural area into a dynamic city, Teeters said.
"But it still retains its hometown roots," she said.
Photos of business and recreational activities give testament to the activities of everyday life.
Among the most far-ranging developments during the years covered was the development of mobile home parks in the 1950s and '60s, according to Teeters.
"This brought a large number of retirees to town and changed the local dynamics," she said.
Without the younger families that had populated the area before, fewer schools were needed for decades.
"These were active seniors, however, and they started such groups as garden clubs," she said.
Another major change came with the building of the town's sewer plant in the 1980s, allowing major construction projects to go forward.
During the years from the 1940s to the 1980s, Yucaipa developed a central business district, while still retaining an agricultural base, according to the book's introductory paragraphs.
Even as cars filled the streets, students continued to ride horses to school as they had in earlier years. Parades, fairs and community events were important markers in the year's calendar.
During the 1950s, members of the local Women's Club worked diligently to save the oldest building in town, the Yucaipa Adobe.
The 1950s and '60s were boom years, with ranches giving way to housing tracts and the arrival of a hospital, sheriff's station and high school. Growth continued in the 1970s and '80s, with the opening of Crafton Hills College and the Yucaipa Regional Park.
At the end of the 1980s, the town's citizens voted to incorporate as San Bernardino County's 22nd city, with a population of 32,000 residents. The book's final photograph highlights this event.
While a third Arcadia book is not planned, the Yucaipa Valley Historical Society actively chronicles the city's history in chapters that focus in detail on specific topics, such as the community's clubs.
"We are writing the community's history chapter by chapter and hope to someday combine it all into a book," Teeters said.
