Whittier CA was named after a famous poet, John Greenleaf Whittier, by the group of Quakers who initially founded the city. Though the poet never visited his namesake city, he did send a dedication poem to mark the event. With the Quakers in charge, Whittier CA quickly grew to be a major walnut grower and citrus producer exporting “Quaker Brand” fruit. The arrival of the railroads and later a post WWII housing boom brought diversity to Whittier CA and today the city is making an effort to reinvent itself yet again with numerous community revitalization projects.
