Founded in 1882, Covina is seven square miles and located approximately 22 miles east of Downtown Los Angeles in the East San Gabriel Valley. Although the population is approximately 48,462, per the 2017 US Census, the city was once known as one of the smallest cities in the whole country, in the 1900s. Incorporated in 1901, the city's slogan, "One Mile Square and All There", was coined in 1922 when area of the city was only about one square mile.
The city name comes from a merger of the words “cove” and “vine”, creating the name Covina. Fredrick Eaton, an engineer, was inspired by the San Gabriel Mountains forming a natural cove around the planted vineyards and created the name in 1885.
Covina was the third largest orange producer in world by 1909. Since World War II, the orange groves have been largely replaced by single family homes and condo complexes.
Covina is often confused with West Covina which is larger in both area and population, located to its south and west side. Irwindale borders to the west, as well as the unincorporated area of Vincent, and the city of Baldwin Park. Azusa and Glendora lies to the north, the unincorporated community of Charter Oak to the northeast, San Dimas to the east, the unincorporated areas of Ramona and Via Verde, and the city of Pomona to the southeast.
