City Specs

The City of Upland was incorporated in San Bernardino County on May 15, 1906, and is nestled at the base of the San Gabriel Mountains. During the 20th century, Upland has developed into a residential and retail community that has maintained its country and urban ambiance.

Upland has also retained its charm of the past. Historic Downtown Upland is quiet, leisurely place to shop in antique stores, custom shops, and visit fine restaurants. Each Thursday evening (during spring and summer) the Town Center is host to the "Second Avenue Market", a certified Farmer's Market.

Welcome to Hangar 18 Indoor Climbing Gyms, home of Southern California's best indoor climbing. With over 35,000ft² of textured climbing terrain, world-class bouldering, massive lead caves featuring routes up to 70ft long, a friendly and professional staff, and a variety of fitness and yoga classes, Hangar 18 Climbing Gyms are the perfect place for everyone from first-timers just looking to have fun to veteran climbers looking to push the threshold of their stamina and endurance to the next level, and from birthday parties to corporate team-building events. Our new Riverside location is a truly state-of-the-art facility, with one of the largest freestanding bouldering walls in the country and more than ten times as much roped climbing as any other gym in Riverside, and our Upland location features a massive bouldering wall, two huge toprope areas, an enormous lead cave, and a forty-foot long roof climb across the ceiling, forty feet off of the ground.

As you walk around through the pits, you'll see lots of participation from Moms and Dads, sisters and brothers, as they all work together to get the kart (and the racer!) ready to go back on the track. Karting is not a frivolous sport and young people learn the necessity of safety and preparedness, along with the valuable mechanical skills that will help them throughout their lives. Our young competitors learn to compete in a sportsmanlike manner against each other, and all efforts are made to keep everything in the context of what it's supposed to be ......... FUN!! Many of our former TCKC racers have graduated to bigger and better forms of motor sports, and if you talk to them, they'll tell you that the lessons they learned while competing at TCKC are still very valuable to them.
Sherry Kinison has always been destined for stardom as an optimistic and caring person - as well as a performer and talented songstress.

As a little girl, Sherry McFaddin listened, observed, sang, and was part of the joyous atmosphere inspired by the leadership of her parents, James and Virginia McFaddin, pastors of a church in Rockford, Illinois. “I was lucky to have a mom and dad who taught us the positive power of creation in our own lives - to pursue our dreams, vision, and goals.”

Sherry’s interest in voice and the theater came naturally as she grew up listening to good music and singing with some of the finest musicians in her fathers church. “The church music was fabulous,” she said, “so many young people came. Singing taught me what the arts can do for the spirit and how lives can be changed.”

At the Grove has been a terrific place to apply those beliefs with her policy of open auditions. “Even though people may be insecure at first, theater does so much for the self-esteem of those who participate. Many people have the feeling, ‘I always wanted to but...’ It is never too late! And for those who want to participate off the stage there are many wonderful opportunities!”

It was 1948 when the Twin City Golf Club was renamed the Tri-City Country Club. For the next 40 years community leaders and businessmen knew that the Country Club was the center of important community events, the splashy receptions, and was the place to be seen.

Throughout the 50s and 60s it was also the premier golfing destination in the Tri-Cities hosting prestigious events and tournaments. In the 70s, 80s, and 90s new longer courses at meadow springs and canyon lakes and horn rapids were built. Now it is known more as the “shotmakers” course and the most couple friendly course in the area. Friendliness and hospitality remain hallmarks of the course and “Tumbleweed” is still among the best women’s tournaments in the state. The Tri-City “Guys and Dolls” Couples tourney in July also draws entries from a wide area.
Established in 1965, the Chaffey Communities Cultural Center is dedicated to preserving and interpreting the history and culture of the communities of Upland, Ontario, Montclair, Mt. Baldy, Rancho Cucamonga and San Antonio Heights.

It was first located at 525 W. 18th Street and operated there from 1965 until 1988 when its historic building was the victim of an arson fire. The building was severely damaged and many artifacts were totally destroyed or damaged beyond repair. For almost 8 years, this museum location was closed completely as the building was repaired, artifacts sorted an salvaged.

In 1995 The Chaffey Communities Cultural Center received a generous donation from the estate of Miss Ada Cooper, a long time resident of Alta Loma. With those funds, we were able to purchase an Art Moderne style building located at 217 A Street in downtown Upland. It was built in 1937 by the Ontario-Cucamonga Fruit Exchange to serve as their offices. The "O.K. Fruit Exchange" dates back to 1897 when it was formed to coordinate the sales of oranges, lemons, and grapefruit from a dozen local packing houses. When the Exchange closed in the 1960s, the building was used as offices by the West End Board of Realtors and later by several local attorneys and accountants. In 1997, the Cooper Regional History Museum was dedicated at 217 East A Street in downtown Upland.

But since that time, there has always been a goal of re-opening the 18th street location to feature the agricultural implements that were so important to the early building of this community. That reality has finally happened. This original 18th Street facility has re-opened, as of May, 2009.

In addition to the agri-business exhibits, we will be able to exhibit other items in our collection that are just too large to be displayed at the downtown museum. As an added feature, we will have a research library available, focusing on local history research. Included in the library will be old books and maps of the area, clipping files, scrap books, historic home research tools, and a growing genealogy and family history collection.

We also hope to sponsor workshops on historic home identification and preservation, and help interested owners with the paperwork necessary to get their properties on historic registers. Another goal is to sponsor workshops on collections management and artifact preservation and restoration. So come on by and see what we have to offer. Initially, the 18th Street location will be open Thursday 2-6pm, and Friday and Saturday 10-6pm.
