A Brief History Of Orange County California

What more reliable group can be depended upon for a chronological and historical account of OC History than the Orange County Historical Society?

When Orange County was created in 1889 it was unknown and surrounded by Los Angeles County, Riverside County, San Bernardino County and San Diego County. But with the Pacific Ocean, scenic coastlines and sandy beaches… It wasn’t unknown for long.

The coastal communities of San Clemente, Dana Point, Laguna Beach, Newport Beach and Huntington Beach are some of the most popular cities when it comes to enjoying a day at the beach and playing in the surf.

The county has grown a lot
in over 125+ years and as of 2016 the population is over 3.1 million with a median annual household income above $75,000. That’s a lot of people making a lot of money! But you need to make a lot of money to live in Orange County, since the median price for a single family home is around $735,000.

Population Explosion in Orange County

1963  Orange County Population reaches 1,000,000
1981  Orange County Population reaches 2,000,000
2010 Orange County Population reaches 3,000,000

Orange County housing developments eventually began to blossom in the 1960’s when master-planned communities like Mission Viejo enticed home buyers with The California Promise.
