When the city of Covina CA was first founded, a young engineer tasked with surveying the area was impressed by the picturesque way that the San Gabriel Mountains seemed to encircle the local vineyards like a cove. He coined the name Covina by combining the words “cove” and “vine.” As the city grew, orange and grapefruit orchards overtook the vineyards and by 1909 Covina CA was the third largest orange producer in the world. Today visitors can see many artifacts and documents relating to Covina CA’s history at the Firehouse Jail Museum in Old Town Covina. Some historical artifacts like asbestos-containing materials won’t be on display at the museum but they may be found in your home.
