Louis Robidoux (1796 -1868, known generally as Rubidoux in the Riverside, California area) was an early European settler in the area of modern-day Riverside, California. Mount Rubidoux is named for him.
Rancho Jurupa was a 40,569 acre Mexican land grant in California that is divided by the present-day counties of Riverside and San Bernardino. The land was granted to Juan Bandini by Governor Juan B. Alvarado in 1838. Located along both banks of the Santa Ana River in southern California the rancho included much of the land in the present day city of Jurupa Valley, as well as the downtown area in the city of Riverside. In 1843, Bandini sold approximately 1 1/2 square leagues of the original Rancho Jurupa grant to Benjamin Wilson. Wilson sold the property to Isaac Williams and James Johnson who sold it to Louis Robidoux in 1849, and it eventually became known as the Robidoux ranch. After California was ceded to the United States, a claim for Rancho Jurupa was filed by Louis Robidoux with the Public Land Commission in 1852 and he received a US patent for a 6,750-acre portion of Rancho Jurupa in 1876
