The La Habra real estate market was initially created by two men, Andrew McNally, a printer and mapmaker from Chicago (ever heard of Rand McNally?) and his son-in-law Edwin Neff. In the late 1800’s, McNally purchased over 1,800 acres of Rancho Los Coyotes south for over $180,000. He developed over 676 acres into his own home called Windemere Ranch and surrounded it with olive, lemon and orange groves. McNally built a plant, where you will now find La Habra properties, to process the olive oil, which was of the best quality, as well as a railroad station on Stage Road. From here his olive oil and fruit were shipped all over the U.S. In the 1890’s McNally turned his property over to his daughter and his son in law. McNally and Neff formed the La Mirada Land Company, which published a booklet entitled “The Country Gentleman in California”, advertising parcels of land for sale in La Mirada including pictures, a map and descriptions of scenic olive, alfalfa, lemon and grapefruit groves. In 1953, the land was sold to subdivisions for over 4.8 million dollars, one of the largest real estate transactions in California. By 1960, the year the city of La Habra was incorporated, La Habra had grown from a mere 100 homes to over 8,000. The city was incorporated as "La Habra Hills" on March 23, 1960.
