Anaheim, stretching across most of Orange County, boasts award-winning schools, attractive neighborhoods, plus terrific shopping, dining and world-class entertainment and resort experiences. The city’s eastern rolling hills offer picturesque views of mountains, streams, parks, valleys and city lights — all within minutes of Disneyland or the beach.

Anaheim, Orange County’s oldest city, incorporated on February 10, 1870 when it was still part of Los Angeles. The city contains a balance of residential neighborhoods (single family houses and condos), parks, schools and business space. The community features ample employment opportunities along with extensive recreational venues.

The City of Anaheim is home to over 330,000 residents — and growing fast, thanks to new development in its Anaheim Platinum Triangle district and Anaheim Hills.

Historically, the city of Anaheim was founded in 1857 by 50 German families of grape farmers and wine makers from the region around Rothenburg ob der Tauber, Franconia in Bavaria. The first settler was Daniel Kraemer. The settlers named their community Annaheim, German for “Home by the Santa Anna River”. Over time, the name was modified slightly to simply Anaheim. To its Spanish-speaking neighbors, the area was known as Campo Alemán (Spanish for German Field). The grape and wine industry was brought to its knees in the 1880s by an insect infestation. Other heartier crops – walnuts, lemons and, yes, oranges – soon filled the fields of Anahiem. These fruits and vegetables became huge cash crops when the region was connected to the continental railroad network in 1886.

Famous Polish actress Helena Modjeska and her husband settled in Anaheim. While living in Anaheim, Helena Modjeska became good friends with Clementine Langenberger. Anaheim’s Helena Street and Clementine Street are named after these two ladies, and the streets are located adjacent to each other as a symbol of the strong friendship between the two. Modjeska Park in West Anaheim, is also named after Helena.

During the first half of the 20th century, Anaheim was a rural community full of citrus groves and the landowners who farmed them. That all changed in July 1955.

The Disneyland theme park was constructed in Anaheim beginning July 16, 1954 and opened to the public on July 17, 1955 — and has since become one of the world’s most visited tourist attractions. The location was formerly 160 acres of orange and walnut trees, some of which remain inside the Disneyland property today. Hotels and motels began to spread out around the park and residential districts soon followed — along with increasing property values.

In 2001, a new park opened: Disney’s California Adventure. Since renamed Disney California Adventure Park in 2010, it was the most expansive project in Disneyland’s history. During this large expansion of the Disneyland Resort in the late 1990s, the city of Anaheim began to recognize itself as a resort and convention epicenter — and responded by creating the Anaheim Resort area. It includes the Disneyland Resort, the Anaheim Convention Center, the Honda Center (home of the NHL Anaheim Ducks), and Angel Stadium, home to the Los Angeles Angels of Anaheim.

In the last decade, Anaheim has undergone a rigorous transformation to create a level of metropolitan beautification that attracts even more tourism. In 2007, the city celebrated its sesquicentennial (150th anniversary) by opening the Anaheim Walk of Fame near the Harbor Boulevard entrance to the Disneyland Resort. The first star to be placed on the Anaheim Walk of Fame was Walter Elias Disney, the man most responsible for making Anaheim the hugely popular tourist destination it is today.

Anaheim lies within ZIP Codes 92801-92809, 92812, 92814, 92815, 92816, 92817, 92825, 92850 and 92899.

A bit of trivia: Rudolph Boysen served as Anaheim’s first Park Superintendent from 1921 to 1950. Boysen liked to experiment with hybrid berries. Through controlled pollination, he created a novel variety that caught the fancy of Walter Knott of Knott’s Berry Farm. It was Walter who named it the Boysenberry. Today it can be found in the jam and preserves section of most any supermarket in the country.
