History & History Related Items

Here is a history page for Huntington Park.

The area which is now Huntington Park was part of the old land grants of early California. The prominent Lugo family held the land where the city is located now. Their holdings were among the last of the old ranchos to break up. The land went from the Lugos to various developers, farmers, etc. who came into the area. Some of the early settlers, who could be considered founders of the city, are A. L. Burbank and E. V. Baker. They came in 1899 and within two years developed land they called Sunrise Track. Once it was subdivided, they changed the name to La Park. The two men wanted the Pacific Electric Railway to come through the area so they offered owner, Henry Huntington, a right-of-way along what would become Randolph Street. They also changed the name of the town to Huntington Park from La Park. The name didn't officially change until the city was incorporated later on. The two men, Burbank and Baker, were not really interested in developing a city, but, rather, wanted a commercial center for the transportation of goods between Los Angeles and San Diego.

Several other men, among them, George A. Garlow, Dr. Louis Weber, Dr. Clinton W. Hubbard, A.E. Walters, O.G. Jones, A.A. weber, D.B. Lyons, William Linsey and Frank Tate, helped to create the official City of Huntington Park. The city was incorporated on 1 September 1906 with a population of just 526 residents.
