Temecula’s History and Local Culture

The story of Temecula begins thousands of years ago with the indigenous people who called this beautiful land home. With a history that is both deep and rich, Temecula’s tale is an exciting journey from its ancient beginnings to its status as a thriving city in the present day.

Ancient Times

Long before the city of Temecula came into existence, this region was inhabited by the Temecula Indians. The name ‘Temecula’ is an anglicized version of ‘Temeku’, which is understood to mean ‘place of the sun’ in the Luiseño language. These tribes were hunter-gatherers who lived off the land’s abundance, and their artifacts can still be found in the area today.

Spanish Period (1797 – 1821)

The Spanish period started when the Mission of San Luis Rey, responsible for the Spanish Missionaries in the region, established the Mission San Antonio de Pala in 1816. The Temecula Valley was part of the mission lands, and the Native Americans living there were converted to Christianity.

Mexican Period (1821 – 1848)

Right after Mexico gained independence from Spain in 1821, the Mexican government began granting ranchos to citizens and soldiers, a process that marked the beginning of the Mexican era in California. The Temecula Valley became part of Rancho Temecula, granted to Félix Valdez in 1845.

American Period (1848 – Present)

All the way in 1848 with the signing of the Treaty of Guadalupe Hidalgo that led to California becoming part of the USA. Temecula became a key stop on the stagecoach lines that were spreading into California from the end of the Santa Fe trail.

In the late 19th century, Temecula became a place of importance as a shipping point for cattle and grain. In 1882, the California Southern Railroad, a subsidiary of the transcontinental Santa Fe Railroad, came to Temecula, fostering more growth.

In the late 20th century, modernization began to take hold in Temecula with the 1984 establishment of the Rancho California Master Plan. In 1989, Temecula was incorporated as a city. From its roots as an agricultural community, Temecula has grown into a thriving city, famous for its wineries, festivals, and natural beauty.

Today, Temecula boasts a population of over 100,000 residents and is known for its quality of life, excellent schools, and economic prosperity. It serves as a popular tourist destination, particularly for its historical Old Town, beautiful wine country, and Pechanga Resort and Casino.

The city also hosts many festivals throughout the year, such as the Temecula Valley Balloon and Wine Festival, the Temecula Valley International Film Festival, and the Rod Run classic car event.

In short, from ancient roots to modern prosperity, Temecula’s history is a testament to the endurance and progress of its people. It continues to respect and remember its past while looking forward to a future of growth and opportunity.

HOLY MOLY! Where do I even begin. First of all, in the last 6 years, I've moved probably 3-4 times. I've hired through task rabbit, asked for recs through friends, and have even hired those amazing parking lot patrons you see at every Home Depot. Long story short, it's always been a nightmare. Half of my things end up broken, my walls get scuffed, I end up needing to help lift things and spend hours afterwards cleaning up what the movers messed up. When planning my current move, I knew I had some really tricky pieces that were going to be an absolute beast to move to my new condo. I decided to dish out a couple extra bucks and work with an actual moving company this time after my best friend Lauren raved about LA Moving Star for months.When I tell you I'm astonished. First of all, the price was very reasonable and the movers that showed up were actual professionals. I would call them moving artists to say the least. They strategically have so many tricks up their sleeves in getting massive items through very cramped and small spaces. Everything was wrapped beautifully and not a single thing was damaged. Not only that but they were SO efficient. They were hustling, moving fast, and getting it all done in a timely manner. Usually when companies charge by the hour, I tend to notice workers taking their sweet time in certain areas... But this company values integrity and you can tell. They actually care about their customers and it's SO apparent. My specific movers were Alex, Max, and Serg and the 3 boys were spectacular. This move was definitely not an easy one and they even had to completely disassemble and rebuild my three massive closet pieces by hand.I cannot reccomend this company enough and will be reffering everybody I know to use them. Thank you thank you thank you!!!

Two great workers helped with moving my entire apartment. It was a big move with a fridge, desk, tv and bed. Fast, friendly, and would absolutely hire again. They handled the move up a flight of stairs as well
