If you have yet to create an estate plan, there is no time like the present to get started. A well thought out estate plan can accomplish a number of important goals, including creating a framework for the division of your estate assets upon your death, protecting you and your family in the event of your incapacity, and ensuring that your loved ones are provided for when you are gone. Given how important your estate plan is, selecting an estate planning attorney to assist you in the creation of that plan should be done with a commensurate level of care and consideration. The estate planning attorneys at Sandoval Legacy Group, A Professional Law Corporation are honored to serve the residents of Corona, California with their estate planning needs.
Located in Riverside County, the City of Corona, California is bounded by the cities of Norco and Riverside to the northeast, Eastvale to the north, Chino Hills and Yorba Linda to the northwest, and the Cleveland National Forest and the Santa Ana Mountains to the southwest. Corona can be found approximately 48 miles southeast of Los Angeles and 95 miles north-northwest of San Diego, offering residents proximity to two of the largest, and most popular, cities in the State of California. As of the 2010 census, the City of Corona had a population of 152,374 residents.
In 1886 Robert B. Taylor, Adolph Rimpau, George L. Joy, A.S. Garretson, and Samuel Merrill purchased 12,000 acres of land from the Yorba family in what was then southwestern San Bernardino County. The South Riverside Land & Water Company was formed to develop the newly acquired land. The company quickly made arrangements to establish a railroad depot, and build irrigation systems to bring water to the arid land. The building blocks of the citrus industry in the new town of South Riverside were in place. On July 13, 1896, the citizens of South Riverside voted to incorporate the town into the newly developed Riverside County. When citizens incorporated the new city, they sought to carve their own identity by changing the name to Corona. It wasn’t long before Corona established itself as the “Lemon Capital of the World”.
Corona became known as the “Circle City” because its Grand Avenue was laid out in a circle by well known civil engineer H. C. Kellogg. It wasn’t long before his vision of a series of grid-like streets encircled by a grand boulevard became reality. The first race on Grand Boulevard was held on September 9, 1913. Three races were held that year with racing legends Eddie Rickenbacker, Earl Cooper, Teddy Tetlaff, Barney Olfield and Bob Burman participating. Another race was held in 1914. The next race didn’t occur until April 8, 1916. Corona was experiencing record heat that day and only five cars of the twelve that qualified finished the race. On the 97th lap of the 109 lap race, tragedy stuck as Bob Burman’s Peogeot veered off Grand Boulevard and into the spectators, killing Burman, his mechanic and a security guard. The fate of races on Corona’s Grand Boulevard was sealed and despite its popularity, there were no more races in the Circle City.
Lemon production was so successful that the Exchange By-Products Company was developed to research and produce commercial products from lower grade lemons and lemons that did not sell at market. The plant could handle 1,000 tons of lemons per day, employed 250 people, and operated 24 hours a day. The main products produced at the plant were citric acid, sodium citrate, lemon juice, pectin, and lemon oil. In 1921 the By-Products plant would change its name to the Exchange Lemon Products Company, indicating the facilities focus on research and products derived from the lemon. It was in 1958 that the Exchange merged with Sunkist and formed the Lemon Products Division for Sunkist Growers.
Today, Corona is the home to many large and small companies, and is known as the Gateway to the Inland Empire. Some of the companies headquartered in Corona include Advanced Flow Engineering, Anchor Blue Clothing Company, Fender Guitars, LaSalle Records, Lucas Oil, LuLaRoe, MAVTV, and Troy Lee Designs.
