Laguna Hills History

The city of Laguna Hills is built on one of the major land grants that were developed during the Rancho Era. After Mexico's independence from Spain in the year 1821, those who had served in the government were provided vast lands for cattle grazing. Don Juan Avila was granted the 13,000 Rancho Niguel on which Laguna Hills stands today. Lewis Moulton purchased Rancho Niguel from Don Juan Avila in the year 1874 and increased the original grant to 22,000 acres. Incorporation efforts in the land began in 1987 and on March 5, 1991, the goal of incorporation was finally achieved with 86% of the residents voting in favor of forming the City of Laguna Hills. Laguna Hills officially became a City on December 20, 1991.
