The first permanent resident of Lemon Grove was sheep rancher Robert Allison, who settled here in 1869. It was initially an agricultural community, primarily dealing with sheep and poultry ranching and cultivation of vegetable crops. The name 'Lemon Grove' was given to this area after the plantation and subsequent shipping of lemon and orange plants became the area's major industry. However, these groves disappeared soon, and Lemon Grove was incorporated as a general law city in the year 1977.
