Anaheim is a city located in Orange County, California. With a population of around 340,000 people, this makes Anaheim the 10th most populated city in California and the largest in Orange County. Anaheim has been known around the region for its theme parks and convention centers. Having the second largest landmass for a city in California, it is no wonder why there are so many theme parks and other forms of entertainment in the area. Anaheim is within the Los Angeles metropolitan area which is the 18th largest in the world in terms of population and the second largest in the state of California. Orange County did not break off from this area as its own county until 1889. In 1955, Disneyland was constructed in the city, that is when all of the construction of motels, hotels, and residential living areas were incorporated. Because of all the new construction, this made Anaheim a large industrial area. They soon began producing items such as electronics, canned fruits, and parts for aircrafts. Anaheim is split into three different districts that all serve different purposes. The most visited area by tourists would have to be the Anaheim Resort district. This district includes places such as Disneyland and the Disneyland Resorts, this area has hotels and motels all over the region mostly used by tourists on vacation that visit the two theme parks. The second district of Anaheim is called the Platinum Triangle district. This Platinum Triangle district was once a large industrial area but due to redevelopment, it is quickly becoming a residential area for the citizens in the county. Retail spaces and offices are also being developed in this area for a more urban feel. The third area is once again an industrial area. The Anaheim Canyon is north of Route 91 and east of Route 57 in the California state.
The area that we know now as Anaheim, California was founded by around fifty German families in 1857. Coming from San Francisco, and before that, Rothenburg ob der Tauber, these German families left their homes in San Francisco to seek out a large amount of land to harvest their grapes. This group of 50 families bought around 1200 acres of land, each acre of land costing them 2 dollars. For only around 800 dollars, the group bought a company that they named the Anaheim Vineyard Company. The name Anaheim itself means ‘home by the Santa Ana River’ in German. Most of the German people that settled in this area were not wine makers however. Many of the Germans were mechanics and carpenters. The knew little about making wine but succeeded in developing a structured system to produce it. Within this area of land they bought, they soon built a town center and a school for the children to attend. Homes were now being built in the area as well, with the first house constructed in 1857. About 15 years later the town already had its own source of news by developing a newspaper company they called the Anaheim Gazette. A year later in 1871, a hotel was constructed in the area. Although at first the German people of Anaheim found great success as California’s leading wine producer, this soon pummeled in 1884 when a deadly disease infected many of the grapes in the vineyards. It took less than a year for this problem to effect the entire town, after this problem occurred, the area had to look for a different way of making money. Luckily, there were more crops that they harvested other than grapes. These included fruits, vegetables, and nuts such as walnuts, lemons, and oranges. In 1887, the county was connected to other regions through railways, this expanded the businesses immensely.
Before Disneyland was opened for business, the area that inhabited it was full of orange groves. A man by the name of Bennet Payne Baxter was a farmer who successfully came up with his own way of irrigating the oranges and creating the orange groves. Not only was the land that he farmed on thriving with groves, he traveled along to other farms to help out the farmers and farmhands, teaching them his secret of growing so many oranges. This made Anaheim a very popular rural community for crops, this was until they constructed Disneyland and the building of the Angels baseball stadium on the land that was once filled with orange groves.
Since the opening of Disneyland in 1955, the city of Anaheim has had well over 700 million visitors. As previously mentioned, the construction of this park was built upon the orange and walnut groves, some of these orange trees are even still there today with the park built around them. In the 1990s, this park district of Anaheim was recognized as the Anaheim resort area. Hundreds of thousands of tourists go to this area every year, because of this, this district makes most of its money off of those who come to visit the area by visiting the theme parks and staying in the many hotel/motels in the region.
Anaheim has what is called a subtropical mediterranean climate. This climate derives from the mediterranean region in which many of the areas in that part experience this type of weather. The summers in Anaheim are very hot and dry. The winters on the other hand are not particularly cold, but they also are very wet and rainy. With highs of a little over 100 degrees in the summer, the temperature adjustment in the winter is not far behind with an average high of 95 degrees.
Since the founding of Anaheim by the Germans in the 1850s, the culture has expanded. As of lately, the demographics of Anaheim are as follows. Around 53 percent of the population is white, 52 percent is Hispanic, 15 percent is Asian, and 5 percent is African American. The culture has come a long way since it was founded, back when the German families bought the area, the entire population was white. 1970 was the first time the city of Anaheim saw any diversity with its people. By then, there was an upward amount of 20 percent Hispanics. 20 years later in 1990, the city brought in double that amount of Hispanics with about 32 percent of the people, the whites then started to decline to only 70 percent of the population. Now the area is pretty well regulated with a large diversity of people and cultures.
