History & History Related Items

In the early 1800's, after Mexico separated itself from Spain, many loyalists were given large grants of land in California. The 13,000 acre Rancho Niguel was given to Don Juan Avila and this is where Laguna Hills would later locate. The land was sold to Lewis Moulton in 1874. With this purchase the ranch was increased to 22,000 acres. The ranch was used mainly for sheep and cattle raising. In the early 1960's, the Moulton Ranch was divided up. A portion of this division became known as Laguna Hills. The residents voted on 5 March 1991 and the effort for cityhood was realized. The official date for the incorporation is 20 December 1991. Later, in November 1995, the north Laguna Hills area was annexed and again the city was enlarged on 18 September 2000 when 149 acres known as the Westside Annexation area was added to the city.
