About Juniper Ridge
There is quite a historical background when it comes to Juniper Ridge. It used to be called Cordonier Ranch before 1971 and was used for sheep grazing. Due to an accident involving a semi-truck and a sheep, the city was required to put restrictions so the sheep could not travel along the highway. The ranch area stopped being used and eventually became the community it is today, known as Juniper Ridge.
