La Habra Heights History

In 1839, Don Mariano Reyes Roldan received a 6,698 acre land grant and named it Rancho Cañada de La Habra. Abel Stearns purchased the land in 1860s, however, he was ruined by a great drought in 1861. The San Francisco capitalists occupied the land, and the market price of it ranged from $2 to $10 per acre. Most of the new purchasers were Basque sheep growers. Mrs. Sansinena, one of the purchasers of the land, decided to sell her 3,500 acres to W. J. Hole in 1900s. These acres later on became La Habra Heights. Hole sold the land in 1919. Edwin G. Hart, the new owner, developed the beautiful frost free hills as an avocado growing belt. In 1921, water reached the Heights with the completion of the reservoir at Hacienda and East Road. The city was incorporated in 1978.
