City of Ontario Museum of History and Art

Our lovely city of Ontario has a variety of landmarks that we may be unaware of yet we walk or drive past them every day.

One of these landmarks is the Museum of History and Art located on 225 South Euclid Ave.

The location of the Museum of History and Art originally served as the City Hall of Ontario beginning in 1910, but the building that houses the museum was not built until 1937. The museum was built in what is considered to be a Mediterranean revival style. Designed by Dewitt Mitcham, an architect from San Bernardino, construction of the building costed a total of $100,000.

The Museum of History and Art served as the city hall until 1976 and it was designated as a historic landmark on September 7 1993.
