The City of Ontario
Ontario is a city rich in history and culture. It was founded by George and William B. Chaffey in September of 1882; they named the city in honor of their home province: Ontario, Canada. The Chaffey brothers established three principles for the colony: a mutual water company concept, a grand thoroughfare, and an agricultural college for general education. The city was aptly dubbed the new “Model Colony,” as it struck a highly desirable balance between rural and urban living. To this day, the city of Ontario possesses the amenities of a large urban metropolis with a true-to-its-roots agricultural spirit.
