Overview

Introduction to Hacienda Heights, California

Hacienda Heights is an unincorporated California community located in Los Angeles County, about 20 miles east of Los Angeles. Principal highways servicing the community include California State Highway 60 and Interstates I-10 and I-605. Surrounding communities include La Puente (to the north), Rowland Heights (to the east), La Habra Heights (to the south) and Whittier (to the west).

Hacienda Heights History

Situated in a region of eastern Los Angeles County originally inhabited by Gabrielino Indians, Hacienda Heights was originally part of Rancho La Puente, a 48,790-acre tract that formerly belonged to the San Gabriel Mission. By the end of the 19th century, the ranch had been bought and subdivided by developers, who established Hacienda Heights and its surrounding communities. By the early twentieth century the region became known for its abundance of citrus, walnut, and avocado crops. After World War II, however, the region underwent a building boom and crops took a back seat to development, resulting in the area's residential character today. In 2003, voters were asked to decide whether Hacienda Heights should incorporate and become a city but the measure was defeated by about a 2-1 margin.

Events and Attractions in Hacienda Heights

Hacienda Heights boasts six local parks: Stimson, Pepperbrook, Los Robles County, Manzanita, Thomas S Burton and Country Wood parks. One of the community's premiere annual events is its "I Love America" parade. Started in 1988, this Independence Day celebration features a multicultural parade with performances by dragon dancers and the Falun Dafa waist-drum band. Also part of the festivities is a battle of the bands between local high schools. A noted community landmark is the Hsi Lai Temple, one of the largest Buddhist temples in the Western Hemisphere. Constructed in 1988, the temple encompasses 15 acres and a floor area of 102,432 square feet. Its architecture reflects the traditional style of buildings, gardens and statuary of traditional ancient Chinese monasteries.
