Like the other Orange County cities, La Habra borders mainly on the city of L.A. County. The city is bordered in the southwest, west and north by the Hacienda del Sol, the San Gabriel Mountains and the Los Angeles River. It borders the cities of Santa Ana, El Segundo, San Bernardino, Santa Monica, Huntington Beach, Orange, Riverside and San Diego.
In 1908, the city gained access to the Pacific Electric Railroad, and water was diverted into the area from the San Gabriel River, giving way to a thriving avocado, citrus, and walnut industry. There is a section of US Route 101 that runs through La Habra and Whittier and runs from Brea to the Los Angeles River. It passes through a part of the city and the part that was formerly part of US Highway 101 and US 101, both running from north to south through the Hacienda del Sol to the north and south.
With the guarantee of a reliable water supply, a large part of the citrus cultivation area in the south of the upper valley - on slopes - was planted. The valley of the Country Club was fenced with highlands for winter and spring pastures and surrounded by lush pastures.
The foothills north of La Habra proved to be an ideal growing area for avocados, with the first commercial grove planted in Orange County in 1910 on North Cypress Street. The Pacific Electric Railroad was brought to Lahabra to meet demand for walnuts grown in the southern part of the valley. This line was always intended primarily to transport oranges to packaging plants, but the extensive oak trees and tall dwellings on the west side would support the production of oranges and other fruits and vegetables, as well as a variety of other crops.
In 1909, Pacific Electric Railway (PE) built the La Habra depot and in 1957 it was bought by the City of Lahabra. The development was initiated in the 1960s and in 1976 a park was inaugurated that commemorates Esteli, the twin town of Laabra, and the town of Laguna Niguel.
Most cities use the code 562, the only city in Orange County that does, but in fact La Habra has a number of connections to Los Angeles. Indeed, a map of Southern California looks like a catacomb without highways serving as transit roads anywhere in the world. Most of the major highways in LA County, such as the 405, 405 Freeway and I-405, are located in Los Angeles County and are north of Lahabra.
When the area was part of Alta California in 1839, huge herds of cattle and horses grazed in the hills and valleys of Southern California. This also indicates that the aforementioned explorers went through Lahabra on their way to Los Angeles and the San Gabriel Valley.
The Sterns were ruined by the great drought of 1861, and the land went to a San Francisco-based businessman who put it on the market for $2 to $10 per acre. The new owners organized and put the "Star Ranchos" up for sale at prices ranging from $1.5 to $2,000 per square foot, with prices ranging from $2 to $10 per acre, according to the Los Angeles Times.
The Picos lost Rancho La Habra to Don Abel Sterns, who owned the ranchos that included the San Fernando Valley, San Bernardino County and San Diego County. The Picos lost Rancho Lahabra to Don Abel Stein, a San Francisco businessman and owner of the Stern family, whose ranchos included Santa Rosa, Santa Barbara, Los Angeles, Riverside, Orange and Ventura counties.
