Louis Rubidoux was an early European settler in the area of modern-day Riverside, California, United States. He arrived in California in 1844. He bought Rancho San Jacinto y San Gorgonio from James Johnson in 1845, and a portion of the Rancho Jurupa from Benjamin Wilson in 1849. Rubidoux became a successful rancher. He built the first grist mill in the area, operated a winery, and became one of San Bernardino County's first three supervisors. The town of Rubidoux and Mount Rubidoux in Riverside County, California are named for him.
