Anaheim, which is found in Orange County is actually part of the greater Los Angeles metropolitan area. The city of Anaheim had a population of nearly 340,000, ensuring it is the most crowded city in Orange County and the 10th most numerous city in California. Anaheim is behind only Irvine when it comes to actual miles of land the city holds, and it is recognized for its world-famous theme parks, professional sports teams, and national convention center.

Anaheim came into being when nearly 45 German families discovered the real estate in the mid 1850’s. It became the 2nd city of Los Angeles County in1876. Anaheim morphed into a manufacturing center, building electronics, airliner assembly sections and canned fruit. It is the home of the Disneyland Resort, a world-famous composition of theme parks and hotels which opened in 1955.


The borders of Anaheim's housing market stretch from Cypress in the west to the San Bernardino county line in the east and encircle a disparate assemblage of neighborhoods and subdivisions. Anaheim Hills is a pre-conceived community found in the city's eastern edges that is home to many sports stars and executives. Downtown Anaheim has three mixed-use historic districts, the largest of which is the Anaheim Colony. The Anaheim Resort, a commercial district, includes Disneyland, Disney California Adventure, and a multitude of hotels and commercial centers. The Platinum Triangle, an upscale neo-urban newly-constructed region encompassing Angel Stadium, is envisioned to be occupied with multi-purpose streets and high-rise condominiums. Lastly, Anaheim Canyon is a manufacturing district adjacent to interstate 91-freeway and 57-freeway.

Anaheim's label is a fusion of "Ana", after the neighboring Santa Ana River, and "heim", a frequent German dialect place name amalgam initially referencing "home". The city of Anaheim was established prior to 1858 by approximately 47 German-Americans who were residents of Northern California and whose families began in Bavaria. After passing across the state searching for a relevant district to cultivate grapes, the faction elected to buy a nearly 1,100-acre plot of land from Juan Pacifico Ontiveros' expansive Rancho San Juan Cajon de Santa Ana in current Santa Ana for over $1.50 per acre.

For over $740 a stake, the faction created the Anaheim Vineyard Company. Their contemporary neighborhood was named Anaheim, translated "home by the Santa Anna River" in German. The name ensuing was transformed to Anaheim City. To the Spanish-speaking acquaintances, the resolution was recognized as Campo Alemán (English: German Field).

Albeit grape and wine-making was their dominant ambition, the preponderance of the 45+ settlers were mechanics, carpenters and craftsmen with no experience in wine-making. The Anaheim real estate market put away nearly 41 acres for an Anaheim town center and an educational institution was the first building built here. The first Anaheim home was built in 1857, the Anaheim Gazette Anaheim city newspaper was established before 1871 and a hotel in 1872. For two and a half decades, the region was the biggest wine producer in California. Nevertheless, before 1885, a malady poisoned the grape vines and by the next year the complete commerce was devastated. Other produce soon consumed the empty area. Fruits and vegetables had become feasible monetary crops when the Los Angeles – Anaheim district was linked to the continental railroad.

During the middle-point of the 20th century, before Disneyland was constructed, Anaheim was a enormous pastoral area populated by orange groves, and the Anaheim home owners who farmed them. One of the landowners was Baxter, who owned much real estate in northern area of Anaheim that today is the venue of Angel Stadium, He drew up many fresh, modern schemes for sprinkling orange groves and collaborated his plans with other Anaheim landowners. He was not only lucrative, he assisted other landowners and businessmen prosper as well. Ben Baxter and other landowners helped to make Anaheim a booming bucolic society prior to Disneyland altering the city permanently. Today, a thoroughfare traces along Edison Park which is named Baxter Street. Also during this time, Boysen served as Anaheim's initial Park Superintendent for 30-years. Boysen devised a composite berry which Knott subsequently christened the boysenberry.

Before 1925, Ku Klux Klan associates were voted in to the Anaheim City Council on a platform of political reform. Up until that point, the city had been disciplined by a established trade and civil elite that was for-the-most-part German American. Given their established practice of conservative social drinking, the German Americans did not vigorously back prohibition laws of the time. The mayor himself was a former bar owner. Compelled by the pastor of the First Christian Church, the Klan depicted a spiraling faction of governmentally adjusted non-ethnic Germans who criticized the elite as crooked, undemocratic, and self-serving. The Klansmen proposed to establish what they foresaw as a model, systematic community, one in which embargo against alcohol would be stringently upheld. At the time, the KKK had approximately 1,180 members in Orange County. The monetary and professional portrait of the pro and anti-Klan groups shows the two were familiar and about equally well-heeled.  Klan members were Protestants, as were the majority of their adversaries, however the hostility to the Klan also involved many Catholic Germans. People who merged with the Klan had earlier reflected a much greater percentage of voting and urban involvement than did their competitors, and many of the people in Orange County who joined the Klan did so out of a sense of civic activism. Upon easily winning the local Anaheim election in April 1924, the Klan representatives swiftly canned city laborers who were known to be Catholic and reinstated them with Klan delegates. The new city council attempted to prosecute forbiddance. After its win, the Klan chapter held large rallies and initiation ceremonies over the summer.

The resistance to KKK's dominance on Anaheim politics organized, bribed a Klansman for their classified membership calendar, and uncovered the Klansmen running in the state primaries; they beat the majority of the nominees. Klan challengers prior to 1926 regained local government, and triumphed a special election in recalling the Klansmen who had been elected in April 1924. The Klan in Anaheim effectively disintegrated, its newspaper was brought to a halt after losing a libel suit, and the minister who led the local movement relocated to Kansas.

Land-breaking at the Disneyland theme park began in 954, and it opened to the public in 1955. It has become one of the world's most visited tourist attractions, with over 640 million visitors since its inception. The location was formerly nearly 161-acres orange and walnut trees, some of which are still found on this valuable Anaheim real estate. Hotels and motels began to increase and Anaheim residential districts soon followed, with increasing property values. Prior to 2002, Disney's California Adventure, the most expansive project in the theme park's history, opened to the public.

Before 1971, the Census Bureau announced Anaheim's population as 9.3% Hispanic and 89.2% non-Hispanic white. In the late 20th century, Anaheim grew rapidly in population. Today, Anaheim has a diverse ethnic and racial composition.
