Grayback District was formed February 1, 1974, when the former Grayback Council # 24 was absorbed into California Inland Empire Council # 45. It originally covered the greater communities of Redlands, Yucaipa, Mentone, and Loma Linda.
Grayback’s name, like its preceding Council, is named for the alternate name for Mt. San Gorgonio, the highest peak in Southern California.
In 1992, the Pass Area District was absorbed into the District, bringing the greater communities of Beaumont and Banning into the district.
The District was briefly merged with Arrowhead District in 1995 to form the Saahapta District. The District came back into existence in 1996 until another merger with Arrowhead District, which formed the current Gray Arrow District.
The Grayback District is well-known for their Pop Nye Memorial Camporee, named for longtime Scouter William “Pop” Nye in 1973. The Grayback District also gave continuous service to the annual Lincoln Pilgrimage held at the Redlands Lincoln Shrine.
