The Desert Cahuilla Indians were the first to settle the area, hunting and gathering on the land. They dug wells and planted crops, which later became a great industry of the farmers in the area, as they grew and sold vegetables, citrus, melons, dates, corn, grapes and onions. With the addition of railways to the Los Angeles area in 1876, farmers were able to sell crops to the metropolitan areas.
