Incorporated in 1909, Huntington Beach remained a sleepy seaside town until the city's legendary oil boom in the 1920s. Wells sprang up overnight, and in less than a month, the city's population more than doubled.

Originally part of the Lugo family’s vast Rancho San Antonio, Huntington Park evolved at the beginning of the 20th century because enterprising developers A. L. Burbank and E. V. Baker gained control of 100 former rancho acres called the Sunrise Tract. First renamed La Park, this land just south of Los Angeles was later called Huntington Park, after Burbank and Baker granted tycoon Henry Huntington a right-of-way to put his railway line along Randolph Street in 1902. Incorporated in 1906, the city of Huntington Park became a significant freight station for cargo coming to and going from Los Angeles. A working-class suburb throughout its first century, the nicknamed “City of Perfect Balance” saw a population shift beginning in the 1970s. Latinos have assimilated into the community’s fabric, revitalizing the busy central business district of Pacific Boulevard. Huntington Park is a central hub of the Latino community in Los Angeles County.

I lived in Huntington Park from 1953-1968 and went to Middleton Street School, Gage Junior High, and Huntington Park High School and then I moved away and only returned once about 7 years later. I have a lot of memories of Huntington Park so was interested to read this book and I learned a lot about the city that I hadn't known. I still have all my HPHS year books from those years. We lived on Roseberry Avenue which was a few blocks from the Owl Market on the corner of Santa Fe and Florence Avenue - that's gone now as are a lot of the places that were familiar. The place is totally different now, about 99% Hispanic; I've heard even the city officials speak nothing but Spanish at their meetings. Pacific Blvd. was the place to be - Sav-Ons sold ice cream cones for 5 cents each. It was a mostly Caucasian area but I went to school with a good number of Mexican and Black kids as well. The book brought it all back. My Dad worked for General Motors in South Gate - that's gone now too. As is my Dad. So many memories. Great book written by a person who really seems to like the town. When I visited in 1976, it had really gone downhill, trash was everywhere on Pacific Avenue. It really hurt to see that. I never returned. The book makes it sounds like it has made a come-back and is a nice place again.

If you have any interest in Huntington Park, this is definitely the book for you. And if you are living there now, please take good care of it. Many wonderful people have walked down Pacific Avenue before you.

My grandpa (79) and my dad (54) LOVED this book and all the pictures. They can remember so much of Huntington Park already, but seeing the look on their faces and they looked through the photos in this book, and the memories and history, it was great. It was like they were home again. I love these books on all the different regions. I have found so much useful information and history on all our surrounding areas from these books. Well done. What a great idea to have books on all different cities, towns, neighborhoods - it seems they don't leave anyone out. Thanks for making my grandpa and my dad two very happy boys.

it's a pretty good intro to the town, more than you're likely to find other places. not very in-depth.

I really hit a dead end when writing a paper of the specific city, with not many photographs. The book came handy and I got and A!
So thank you :)

I was born and raised in HP. I have seen what I call the end changes of the city. I was lucky enough to have meet some of the greatest people in HP when my parents use to own a business that was around HP around the 1920's/30's in the area. While I was growing up I always new this city was more special then what I have seen while growing up. This book help me to better understand the HP that was round before me. I really wish a book like this was around when I was in school in HP, we could have use this. Maybe it would have given us all some more pride in this great city. I mean we were one of the lucky few to have a real Warner Theater from the 30's to having Roy Rogers in our Christmas Parade, remember seeing him when I was a kid.
