The History of Fullerton, CA by The Fullerton Plumber
In 1837, the area known as Rancho San Juan Cajon de Santa Ana was a part of a land grant to Juan Pacifico Ontiveros. Ontiveros was the Foreman of the Mission at San Juan Capistrano. The cities of Anaheim, Placentia and Fullerton would develop from this land.
Fullerton would grow to become a noted college town with 3 institutions of higher learning; CSUF, Fullerton College, and Hope Int’l University. Its downtown are would eventually become an incredible night-life destination due to its SoCo District. But it would not surpass the fame earned by its sister city, Anaheim and the magic kingdom—Disneyland. Yet, Fullerton is still one of the coolest and historic towns in all of Southern California.
