One of the first events was the 1883 trip of Ramona writer Helen Hunt Jackson to the San Jacinto River to collect materials about the Sobobobas, a group of missionary Indians who live on the eastern side of the San Jacinto River. Mrs Jackson was escorted into the village by her translator, Abbot Kinney.
Jackson and Kinney remained at various farms during their visits and encountered a number of villagers and mountaineers, especially Charles Thomas and Hancock McClung Johnston. They ranched in the San Jacinto Mountains, where they were raising racehorses in what was then Hemet Valley. These two men and others no doubt told Kinney of the 1882 trial in which the Rancho San Jacinto Viejo estates were divided between various people, some of whom imagined making a gain from their stocks if an adequate source of fresh drinking waters could be made.
In the Hemet Valley, Kinney also found and saw a possible storage lake when a dike was built over the South Fork of the San Jacinto River. with Judson and Peter Potts under the same conditions as the Lake Hemet Company. Initially designed by Abbott Kinney and Hancock M. Johnston, the city of Hemet developed under the vigilant eyes and financial guidance of E.L. Mayberry and later W. Whittier.
In the same months, the four men and a Mayberry capitalistic lover, William Whittier, of H.T. Hewitt, who ran a motel and some stores in San Jacinto, about a northeast of Park Hill, bought another 3,000 acre next to and just off the Estudillo area.
Lake Hemet Company and Hemet Land Company were founded on January 27, 1887 by Johnston, Judson, Mayberry and Whittier, who hold the majorities of the shares in both of them. Originally the plan was to construct a mountain embankment to create a basin to provide the land of the Hemet Land Company, the Estudillo Trakt and two towns, Hemet and South San Jacinto, with fresh ore.
In 1887 the first railway lines were planned to be laid in the San Jacinto valley. The Mayberry and Whittier wanted the Santa Fe Company to lead the track through the Estudillo wing, to the eastern line of the Hemet Country Company property and then northwest to the city of San Jacinto, giving entry to the property purchasers of Hemet and South San Jacinto.
Instead, the first formal procession to the Mayberry' s village arrived in the April 1888 and then headed due south, ending half aile from the city of San Jacinto. In the years 1891 - 1895, during the construction of the Great Hemet Dam at 122-1/2 ft, the city of Hemet began to take a look at Wealth.
His three-storey Mayberry hotel was located on Florida Avenue between Harvard and State Streets; Whittier constructed a storehouse, his own North Harvard Theatre, and North Harvard stores. During 1893, 39 households and companies in the city of Hemet bought household soda from the Lake Hemet Company, and the peasants used irrigated waters in their Lucerne farms, gardens and terraced cultures, especially the potato.
In spite of a serious dry spell in the years 1898-1900 and a serious quake on Christmas Day in 1899, the city of Hemet flourished further. Throughout 1899 Whittier sueed Mayberry for funds due to him taking over all the interests of Mayberry in Hemet and in both the company. Founded the Bank of Hemet, constructed rented houses and a cattle ranch with a half-mile racetrack, which was constructed by the city's inhabitants and provided with power, a system of filters and a line of stages to Idyllwild.
The San Jacinto Valley Register on November 14, 1909 published a summary of a statement by T.S. Brown, a Hemet realtor, in which he demanded that the inhabitants of the municipality should support the foundation. The inhabitants of Hemet on 11 January 1910 decided to found a small village and Brown was chosen as the first major of Hemet.
It was in the Valleys that the event that prompted Helen Hunt Jackson to author Ramona took place, and the creation of a procession on the basis of history was debated for several years as a way of advancing the Val. Since 1923, with only brief breaks during the depression and the Second World War, the Hemet and San Jacinto peoples have come together to organize this procession every year.
He also became famous for the 46-th Agricultural District Farmer's Fair of Riverside County, which began in 1936 as the Hemet Turkey Show, and the Ryan School of Aeronautics, which formed some 6,000 pilots for the Army Air Force between 1940 and 1944. Today Hemet Ryan Airport is located on the premises of the former Ryan Flight School.
Hemet's personality began to undergo dramatic changes in the early 1960s with the emergence of the Sierra Dawn, the country's first "mobile home subdivision", in which single batches were auctioned. Further motorhome fleets and residential complexes for the elderly followed, and Hemet became known as a residential complex for the elderly. Today Hemet continues a large part of his retiree focus, but also becomes home to a large number of younger homes that serve the elderly or just flee the more urbanised areas of Southern California.
