Fullerton, situated just north of Anaheim, boasts award-winning schools, attractive neighborhoods, plus terrific shopping, dining, educational and entertainment experiences. The city’s rolling hills offer picturesque views of mountains, streams, parks and city lights — all within minutes of Disneyland and the beach.

This North Orange County city incorporated in 1904. The community is a balance between residential neighborhoods (single family houses and condos), parks, schools and business space.

The City of Fullerton is home to roughly 135,000 residents.

Historically, Europeans first passed through the area of present-day Fullerton in 1769 when Gaspar de Portolà led an expedition north to establish Mission San Gabriel Arcangel. The land later became part of Rancho San Juan Cajón de Santa Ana, granted to Juan Pacifico Ontiveros, a Spanish soldier. Ontiveros sold parcels in the aftermath of the 1849 Gold Rush, including to Massachusetts native Abel Stearns. In the 1860s, Stearns sold to Domingo Bastanchury, a Basque shepherd. In 1886, while in the area on a duck hunting vacation, brothers George and Edward Amerige heard rumors that the California Central Railroad, a subsidiary of the Santa Fe Railway, was looking for land. Sensing opportunity, they arranged to buy 430 acres north of Anaheim for approximately $68,000. They then began negotiations with George H. Fullerton, president of the Pacific Land & Improvement Company, also a Santa Fe subsidiary. They offered free right-of-way and a half interest in the land to the railroad if Fullerton’s survey were revised to include the proposed town site. On July 5, 1887 Edward Amerige formally staked his claim at what is now the intersection of Harbor Boulevard and Commonwealth Ave. In 1894 Charles Chapman, a retired Chicago publisher and a descendant of John “Johnny Appleseed” Chapman, purchased an orange orchard in eastern Fullerton. The Valencia variety of oranges he promoted from his Santa Ysabel Ranch were well suited to the local climate and proved a boon to producers. Fullerton boasted more orange groves than any other city in the United States. Cultivation of walnuts and avocados also flourished in Fullerton, and the Western railroad town became an agricultural center.

Fullerton’s population soared after World War II as American veterans migrated to California. To serve the exploding population, the California Legislature authorized Orange County State College in 1957, which began operating out of Fullerton high schools in 1959. In 1963, it moved to its present campus on State College Boulevard, and later, after several name-changes, was finally re-designated California State University, Fullerton.

Today, Fullerton boasts more than 50 city parks and is home to Hillcrest Park, the Craig Regional Park, and Ralph B. Clark Regional Park. The Fullerton Arboretum comprises 26 acres of sculpted gardens and unusual plants in northeastern Fullerton. The city features approximately 200 acres of recreational land in the Brea Dam Recreational Area, plus an equestrian center and trails, two 18-hole golf courses, a tennis center and the Janet Evans Swim Complex.

Fullerton lies within ZIP Codes 92831, 92832, 92833, 92834, 92835, 92836, 92837 and 92838.
