Corona, California - Facts & Figures
Corona, CA was established in 1886 during the major citrus boom in the state, and quickly became "Lemon Capital of the World." Corona is located at the north part of the Santa Ana River Canyon, which is the only notable pass through the Santa Ana Mountains. Today, Corona is also known as The Circle City, because its street layout is enclosed by a circle with a grid in the center. The economy in Corona has been aided by the fact that many companies are leaving L.A. and Orange County to be closer to their employees in the suburbs. A major freeway between Corona and those cities has made this even more common.
