Hacienda Heights history:

History of the La Puente Valley area

John Rowland and William Workman purchased the title to the almost 49,000 acres Rancho La Puente when they arrived here in 1841. Workman lost his rights to the property through bad investments to Elias J. Baldwin. Soon after this time Baldwin began to subdivide his holdings. In 1912, Anita Baldwin, one of his descendents, sold 1,826 acres to Edwin Hart and Jed Torrance who further subdivided the area and named it North Whittier Heights. It quickly became known for its avocado, citrus and walnut crops. It wasn't until after World War II that the largely agricultural area became to develop into a residential suburb.

North Whittier Heights changed its name to Hacienda Heights in 1961. There have been several attempts to incorporate though by 2001, these attempts had all failed.

Many of the original homes of the area remain around the area between Gale Avenue and Valley Blvd. Others are found scattered about the community with some belonging to direct descendants of the founders.
