Artesia history:

After changing hands several times, the Artesia Land Company purchased a hundred acres here in 1875. Setters began to come into the area which had rich soil and a good water supply. There are a number of artesian wells from which it is presumed the community was named. In 1906, the Artesia Improvement Company was formed to develop a townsite. Artesia was known for its dairy farms from the 1920's until urban sprawl forced the dairies further inland. The city was incorporated on 29 May 1959.
The incorporation date of Artesia: May 29, 1959
