Erected in 1907 soon after the road was built leading to the top, the Sierra Cross was dedicated to the founder of the California Mission chain Junipero Serra. The cross is located at the top of Mount Rubidoux and was known for its nondenominational Easter Sunrise Service, which started in 1909 and had a peak of 30000 visitors in 1920.

Originally known as Pachappa and renamed after early settler Louis Rubidoux, Mount Rubidoux is known for its overlooks on Downtown Riverside. The land was purchased by Frank Miller of the Mission Inn (with Henry Huntingon and Charles Loring) in 1905 and opened as a popular park/tourist attraction. Carrie Jacobs-Bond wrote the song "A Perfect Day", one of the most popular songs of the 1910s after watching the sun set over Mount Rubidoux.

Since its heyday at the turn of the 19th century, Riverside has slowly declined. It's now mostly a bedroom community. The Santa Ana River, by which Riverside is named, is shown in the mid-ground, more or less dry from California's record drought in 2014.

The center of the Inland Empire, Riverside is known for its history as the center of the citrus industry, as well as the school UC Riverside. The city was founded by abolitionist John North (who previously founded Northfield, Minnesota) in 1870, and it grew as a cultured, heavily Republican, temperance-minded city. The success of the Washington Navel Orange growing in the sunny, dry climate greatly contributed to Riverside's success, and by the 1880s, with new rail lines and irrigation, the city had nearly 250000 orange trees. In 1895 it was the richest city in the United States by income per capita.

This photo was taken at the saddle near the top of Mount Rubidoux, which overlooks the downtown area. The Sierra Cross is on the far right.
