History

Anaheim, CA’s name is a blend of the Santa Ana River “Ana” and the German name that means ‘Home’. The city was found by 50 German Americans who lived in San Francisco and travelled through the region in 1857. They purchased 1,165 acres of land to grow grapes. Although they set out to grow grapes they had no experiences in growing it or to make wine. They were all mechanics, craftsmen and carpenters. They set aside 40 acres of land for the town hall and a school was the first building to be erected in the land. The first house was built in 1857and the local newspaper the “The Anaheim Gazette” was built in 1870 and the first hotel in 1871. The area was the largest wine producing land in California for 25 years but in 1884 a disease struck and all the vine yards were destroyed. Oranges, lemons and walnuts became the main producing farms and later fruit and vegetables was the main cash generated product in the region. During the years that followed Anaheim, CA was a rural community. When Disney land was build in 1955 a boost of population happened in the city and the city started to grow and prosper.
