La Sierra South mirrors the larger La Sierra neighborhood in urban design and development. The community is mostly developed, with a majority of the land devoted to single-family residential homes. Most homes in this region were built between 1950 and 1980, though the early 2000s saw a massive development of estate-type homes. The southeastern portion of this neighborhood is left to agricultural uses and large residences.
This neighborhood is relatively flat, but the southern edge of La Sierra South rises into the Lake Hills area. Hillcrest High School, the city’s newest, was finished in 2014.
La Sierra got its name from the original Mexican land grant know as Rancho La Sierra de Sepulveda.
The Hole Mansion is the oldest known historical structure in the area, built by lumber baron Willits J. Hole, beginning in 1913. According to local historian Tom Patterson, La Sierra developed as an area of small subsistence farms. A well-established unincorporated area, La Sierra was annexed to the City of Riverside in 1964. The majority of La Sierra South was included in that annexation, and the remaining pieces were added between 1966 and 1987.
