Before becoming incorporated in 1956, the area once known as Vineland was part of the cattle-grazing land belonging to the San Gabriel Mission. In 1906, "Lucky" Baldwin threatened to establish a nearby town, to be named Baldwinville. While entering a Vineland grocery store, Baldwin slipped and was prevented from falling by a community member. The man was so grateful, he withdrew his plans, and the town was later re-named Baldwin Park.
