Pomona Valley

The Pomona Valley, located between the San Gabriel Valley and Cucamonga Valley in Southern California, straddles the border between Los Angeles County and San Bernardino County. The alluvial valley is formed by the Santa Ana River and its tributaries.

Physical dividing lines separating Pomona Valley from San Bernardino Valley on the east include San Antonio Creek, which runs south out of the San Gabriel Mountains watershed around Mount San Antonio (known locally as Mt. Baldy) and joins the Santa Ana River south of Chino. Pomona Valley is separated from San Gabriel Valley to the west by the northeastern end of the San Jose Hills, running approximately along State Route 57. The northern boundary is the San Gabriel Mountains; on the south lie the Chino Hills. Historic U.S. Route 66 runs east-west across the north side of Pomona Valley.

On March 1, 1893 the California Assembly voted 54-14 for a new county to form in the region, to be named San Antonio County, with Pomona as its seat. Los Angeles interests in the Senate rejected the concept, however, and today the eastern and western portions of the valley remain divided between San Bernardino and Los Angeles counties.[1]
