Overview

ABOUT Anaheim

During 1857, 50 German immigrants traveled across California to find new land to develop. Juan Pacifico Ontivero sold the group 1,165 acres in Orange County during the same year, which led to the formation of a new community named Anaheim.

The name “Anaheim” was constructed based on the nearby Santa Ana River and the German “heim,” which translates to “home.” Spanish-speaking inhabitants of neighboring areas referred to Anaheim as Camp Alemán, which in English means “German field.”

The first 50 settlers of Anaheim designated 40 acres of land to build a school and a town center. The Anaheim Gazette, the local newspaper, was founded in 1870, then Anaheim constructed a hotel in 1871.

Between about 1870-1885, Anaheim was California’s biggest wine producer. After a disease spread across the grape vines, the industry declined rapidly and was replaced by orange, lemon, and walnut crops.

Today, Anaheim is a bustling agricultural and commercial city with a population of about 350,000.

An estimated 24% of residents are under 18, while the majority of residents are between 18-44 years old. The remaining 35% of residents are 45 years of age and over.

As for racial diversity, 54% of Anaheim residents are Hispanic, 25% are White, and 16% are Asian. 2% of the population is African American, and 2% are biracial or multiracial.

28% of the population has some college education or an associate’s degree, while 18% have a bachelor’s degree and another 7% have a master’s degree or above.

The median household income is about $65K. The unemployment rate is around 4.5%, and the poverty rate generally trends at 16%.

Weather
Weather

From March through September, the temperatures in Anaheim hover in the 60s and 70s – comfortable enough to walk around, enjoy the beaches, catch an Angels baseball game or a Ducks hockey game, take hiking adventures, or explore the various dining and shopping sites.

There is barely any rain here from June to August. Those who are not fans of the wet weather should avoid going out in January and February – when one is likely to experience the rainiest days. The coldest month is January when temperatures dip to 48°F.

Natural Disasters
Natural Disasters

The city of Anaheim is located in Orange County, Southern California – an area that is most susceptible to earthquakes because of its proximity to several fault zones that include the San Andreas, Newport-Inglewood, Whittier Elsinore, and San Joaquin Fault Zones.

The risks of damage from an earthquake in the city is higher than both the Ohio and the national averages. According to the USGS, there is a 97.48% chance of a major earthquake within 50 kilometers of the city of Anaheim within the next 50 years.

Other natural disasters that are considered major threats to the city include localized flooding from severe winter storms, landslides, and wildland fires.

The Santa Ana River passes through the city of Anaheim, and areas located near the river are prone to severe flooding that causes damage to properties, roads, and public utilities.
