About San Bernardino County

How to Beat a San Bernardino County Traffic Ticket

Once occupied by various Native American tribes, including the Gabrielenos, the Serranos, the Banyumes, the Mohave, and the Chemehuevi, it wasn’t until 1772 when the first explorers led their company into the area. In observance of the feast day of Saint Bernardine of Siena, Franciscan missionary Francisco Dumatz named the valley San Bernardino, which was later given to the nearby mountain range, the city, and then the county. In April of 1853, San Bernardino County was officially formed from parts of Los Angeles, San Diego, and Mariposa Counties. Yet in 1893, a portion of the land was used to create what is now Riverside County. The San Bernardino area quickly became an agricultural hub, and according to the 1870 census, San Bernardino County was credited with producing over 48,700 gallons of wine.

San Bernardino County spans a total of 20,105 square miles making it the largest county in both the state of California and in the entire United States. In fact, the county is larger than the states of New Jersey, Connecticut, Delaware, and Road Island combined. San Bernardino County includes the Mojave National Preserve and parts of Joshua Tree National Park, Death Valley National Park, and Havasu National Wildlife Refuge. Yet, although the county is one of the largest by area, just under 2 million of the county’s 2.157 million people live in a 480 square mile strip south of the San Bernardino Mountains near Riverside.

Many residents and tourists alike take time each year to visit Big Bear lake in the San Bernardino National Forest, hike and camp within Joshua Tree National Park, or explore the Calico Ghost Town northeast of Barstow.
