About Us:

City Of Anaheim is Home for more than 340,000 residents and a thriving business community, Anaheim boasts amenities that no other city can offer: a Major League Baseball team, National Hockey League team, the Disneyland Resort and the largest Convention Center on the West Coast. It is a world-class City committed to unparalleled customer service, whether you visit us in person at City Hall or here on the World Wide Web.

Anaheim is now the tenth largest city in California, which began in 1857 as colony of German farmers and vintners. Founding member George Hansen surveyed the original 200 acres, which now comprises the city's downtown area, bounded by North, South, East and West streets. The City's name is a composition of "Ana" from the nearby Santa Ana River and "heim," German for home. Those early pioneers considered this location their "home by the river."

Between 1880 and 1960, Anaheim was host to several orange growers and processors who used their orange crate labels to identify their brand and advertise a golden California lifestyle.

The city was incorporated in 1876 with a population of 881. By 1920, the population had risen to 5,526, an agricultural community as tightly knit as small towns can be. In 1887, the construction of the Santa Fe depot linked Anaheim's citrus growers with the East, providing vital markets for their golden crops.

A local tradition, which began in 1924 and was recently restarted, again is the Anaheim Halloween Parade. At the height of its popularity, over 150,000 spectators would view the parade along the downtown streets and from La Palma Park grandstand.

The latest change to the Anaheim area has been the renovation of the resort area, the redevelopment of the downtown area and the building of Disney's California Adventure Theme Park and the Grand Californian Resort Hotel.

Anaheim has been transformed from a small farming community to a major sport, entertainment, recreational, and industrial community. Anaheim is truly the best place to live, work and play.
