Like many cities in southern California, La Habra started out as part of a Spanish land grant. The land was used for cattle ranching until La Habra CA was founded in 1896. As ranching gave way to farming in the area, LA Habra CA became known as the home of Hass avocados. The “mother tree” for this extremely popular avocado cultivar was planted in La Habra in the 1920s and stood as a reminder of the city’s heritage until 2002. Of course, not all aspects of our history deserve to be preserved.
