Located below the San Bernardino mountains lies Rialto, CA. The area was purchased in 1851 by the Mountain family, but the claim was later disallowed by the U.S. government. Settlers moved into the region, and with them came grapevines, citrus groves, and ranches. By the early 20th century, the citrus industry had become an integral part of Rialto’s economy.
Today Rialto has reinvented itself as a major center of commerce, with four major distribution centers for FedEx, Target, Toys R Us, and Staples serving the region. Attractions in the city include an original adobe structure built by early settlers in Bud Bender Park, the Rialto Historical society, and the Route 66 landmark Wigwam Motel.

Attorneys in Rialto recently brought suit against San Bernardino County on behalf of a local resident for allegedly violating her 1st amendment right to freedom of religion. The lawsuit alleged that Jameelah Medina (a Muslim) was arrested while commuting to work due to an invalid train pass; she was handcuffed and taken to a local detention center where she was questioned about being a terrorist and forced to remove her hijab (headscarf) in violation of her religious beliefs. The woman was never prosecuted in connection with the arrest. The lawsuit settled in Oct. 2008, with the County of San Bernardino agreeing to adopt a policy accommodating the rights of Muslim women to wear headscarves in accordance with their religious beliefs in County Jails.
