Anaheim’s History​

The city’s unique name was derived from its proximity to the Santa Ana River, and the German and Norwegian suffix “heim” which means home. Anaheim was founded in 1857 by German Americans who purchased the land to grow grapes. The founders formed the Anaheim Vineyard Company, which was the largest wine producer in California for 25 years. Though the growth of grapes eventually became impossible in the area, Anaheim developed a rich cash crop network for lemons and oranges.
