History of Glendora

The history of Glendora began with a land grant to Ygnacio Palomares. He received the Rancho San Jose and its 22,340 acres of land from then Governor Juan Bautista Alvarado back in 1837. In this vast land grant were today’s cities of Glendora, Claremont, Pomona, San Dimas, and La Verne.

The city arose on what was once remote agricultural land after the region received connection to the rest of the world with the finishing of the Santa Fe Railway’s primary transcontinental line running from Chicago to Los Angeles in May of 1887. Glendora officially began on around 300 acres that George D. Whitcomb subdivided and sold off back in March of 1887. The opening day of sales saw 300 lots sold. Whitcomb had founded the Whitcomb Locomotive Works in Chicago and Rochelle back in Illinois before moving to California afterward in the early years of the 1880’s. He came up with the name of Glendora by combining his wife’s name (Leadora) with his home’s location in a San Gabriel Mountains’ glen.

Glendora received a welcome boost in December of 1907 as a new extension in the Pacific Electric Railway opened a passenger service on the Monrovia-Glendora line. This offered a regular service from Glendora’s downtown to the Pacific Electric Building in Downtown Los Angeles. Before the city became incorporated in 1911, the chief administrator held the office of President of Glendora.

Today’s downtown Glendora is the work of many years of careful maintenance and renovation by the city fathers.
