All About El Cerrito

El Cerrito was a tiny rural community nestled up to South Riverside. On July 13, 1896, South Riverside residents voted to include the town into the freshly established Riverside County. The residents sought to carve their own identity to the brand-new city by changing the name to Corona. El Cerrito is a census-designated place in Riverside County, California. It is an unincorporated area surrounded mainly by the town of Corona. 

The people of Corona and El Cerrito were mainly of English and Irish descent. Still, Hispanics and Italians quickly came seeking work in the citrus fields. 

Today El Cerrito’s heritage spans more than a century and has emerged as an ethnically diverse and highly educated community. The area boasts an incredible economy that gets stronger and stronger every day.
