Placentia is located 5 miles from
Disneyland Resort and Downtown Disney (above) in Anaheim.
Placentia, "A Pleasant Place", has a small town warmth and a strong community
spirit with numerous parks and open space to a mostly residential area.
Events such as the annual Heritage Festival and Street Faire showcase the city's
assets. Located in northern Orange County near Fullerton,
John Wayne Airport SNA is
15 miles away. Los Angeles International Airport LAX is 40 miles distance,
Anaheim Convention Center - 5 miles, Anaheim Stadium - 3 miles, California State
University/Fullerton - 1.5 miles and Disneyland 5 miles.
Placentia began as a land grant
comprised of Placentia, Anaheim, Fullerton, La Habra and Yorba Linda in 1837
when the Mexican Governor granted Rancho San Juan Cajon De Santa Ana to Juan
Ontiveros. Daniel Kraemer purchased 3900 acres in 1865 and other settlers such
as William McFadden acquired 100 additional acres. In 1876 the area was named
"Placentia", derived from a Spanish word meaning "pleasant place to live".
Placentia persuaded the Santa Fe
Railroad to re-route their track with a station built and packing houses
established for the town's growing citrus industry. A.S. Bradford laid out the
main streets and, in his honor, Bradford Avenue retains his name today.
Incorporated in 1926, the area's
mild climate was suited for citrus, walnuts, avocados and grape crops, making
Placentia the center of Valencia orange growing and packing.
Today, Placentia is still a
fast-growing community of 45,000 residents, with beautiful suburban homes, good
schools, stately churches, and wholesome recreation.
Placentia has three nice hotel
properties that allow you to enjoy the local tour attractions such as
Disneyland, Anaheim Angels Stadium, Cal State University Fullerton and easy
access to Amtrak train station.
