Artesia History

Artesia was established on May 3, 1875 after the Artesia School District was completed. The village was named after the several naturally flowing Artesian wells that are found in this area. In fact, these wells made Artesia ideal for agriculture and farming. During 1920s and '30s, the area was developed by the Portuguese and Dutch farmers and became one of the most significant dairy districts in Southern California. After the Second World War, several residential tracts were built in Artesia. It was incorporated as a city on May 29, 1959.
