Early Settlers
        After California became U. S. territory in the mid-1800’s early settlers included Mormons who bought land from the sons of Don Antonio Maria Lugo. The Fontana Development Company acquired the land and began the community that is now Fontana.

Read about the early Mormon settlers in this interesting account of life in this Southern California Valley.
Lytle Creek was named after one of the Mormon captains. Take a trip to this lovely site and imagine how wonderful it must have looked to the early settlers.
What made the area of Fontana a good place for the settlers to stop after their travels?
