Upland is a city in San Bernardino County, California, United States on the border with neighboring Los Angeles County. The municipality is located at an elevation of 1,242 feet (379 m) As of the 2020 census, the city had a population of 79,040, up from 73,732 at the 2010 census and 68,393 at the 2000 census. It was incorporated on May 15, 1906, after previously being named North Ontario. The suburb is part of the Inland Empire, a metropolitan area situated directly east of the Los Angeles metropolitan area. The city is located on an eastwest trail that was used by the Native Americans and Spanish missionaries, part of what is now known as the Old Spanish Trail. To the west, the trail led to the San Gabriel Mission, which Spanish Missionaries built in 1771. In 1810, a party of missionaries, soldiers, and Native Americans from San Gabriel mission, under the leadership of Padre Dumetz, were sent out to select a location in the San Bernardino Valley. The expedition named the area around Upland "Cucamonga," which in the Tongvan language meant "sand place," in honor of Saint Bernardino of Siena. The mission was the first place where supplies could be procured after crossing the desert, and as travel over this road increased, the mission arranged to establish a supply station at some intermediate point east. In 1781, Spanish settlers followed Anza's route to found the city of Los Angeles a few miles west of the SanGabriel Mission.


Upland is located at the foot of the San Gabriel Mountains on an eastwest trail that was used by the Native Americans and Spanish missionaries. To the west, the trail led to the SanGabriel Mission, which Spanish Missionaries built in 1771. The trail carried mule-trains over the Cajon Pass, then west through Rancho Cucamonga, Upland, and El Monte, to the region's major settlements at Mission San Gabriel and Los Angeles. The area that present-day UPLand occupies was uninhabited and a place to pass through until the arrival of George Chaffey in 1882. In 1882, Chaffey established the Etiwanda irrigation community, irrigating the land with a series of series of flumes of water carried from a reservoir in the mountains. The first American to enter California overland was Jedediah Smith of the Rocky Mountain Fur Company in 1826. California became part of the United States in 1846, and American settlers began to arrive in large numbers with the California Gold Rush. The land around Uplland was used as grazing land by theSan Gabriel Mission. Under mission rule, cattle ranching became a major industry. The rangy cattle thrived and bred rapidly in the benign climate, and thousands of cattle wandered across the Cuc amonga Rancho. The rancho was granted to Tiburcio Tapia in 1839, and the Rancho passed to his daughter and her husband, Leon V. Prudhomme.
