La Sierra Hills

La Sierra Hills is a sparsely developed rural area in the foothills that separate western Riverside from the cities of Corona and Norco. It was part of a massive acreage that was incorporated by the City of Riverside in the mid-1960s and features medium-density residential development.

The homes here flow along the rolling hillsides, blending into the terrain to keep the rural lifestyle intact. This area sits at the base of the foothills, with access to the 91 Freeway or back roads to Norco.

Neighborhood Info

About La Sierra Hills Riverside, California:

La Sierra Hills takes its name from the high rolling terrain of the western portion of the neighborhood. Because of this geography, the urban landscape has developed in an almost flowing manner around the contours of the land. The diverse topography contributes to the region’s beauty and limited development.

Medium-density residential blocks are confined to the southeastern portion of this region, and even here, development is relatively sparse. Residential development has occurred steadily since the latter half of the 20th century, but the majority of homes were built between 1960 and 1980.

La Sierra was part of the original Mexican land grant known as Rancho La Sierra de Sepulveda.

The La Sierra area was home to the Hole Mansion built by lumber baron Willits J. Hole beginning in 1913. It was the focal point of the several-thousand-acre Hole ranch, which encompassed much of La Sierra and portions of Corona and Norco.

The Pacific Union Conference of the Seventh-Day Adventist Church purchased property from Hole in 1922 for what is now La Sierra University. A well-established unincorporated area, La Sierra voters approved their annexation to the City of Riverside in 1964.

La Sierra Hills was annexed between 1964 and 1965.
