Cypress mesothelioma


Cypress, is in Orange County, California and its neighboring cities include, Los Alamitos and Stanton. Cypress is 10.8 miles from Santa Ana, 17 miles from Torrance, 22 miles from Long Beach, and 25 miles from Los Angeles, CA.  The 2022 United States Census Bureau estimates Cypress’s population at 49,243. 



The Tongva, Acjachemen and Payómkawichum tribes lived in Southern California, including in the Orange County area for thousands of years, before Gasper de Portola’s 1769, Spanish expedition in the region. The Spaniards named these indigenous tribes, the Gabrieleno, Juaneno and Luiseños Indians due to their proximity to the San Gabriel Arcangel Mission, San Juan Capistrano Mission and the San Luis Rey de Francia Mission.  The Tonga-Gabrieleno called the Cypress area Puvunga meaning the “gathering place.”  The indigenous tribes of California were decimated by European diseases, armed conflict with settlers and the United States Army.

In 1784, Spain’s Governor Pedro Fages granted the large 167,000 acre Rancho Los Nietos to Manuel Nieto.  In 1834, the Mexican Governor José Figueroa granted Manuel Nieto’s heir’s request to break-up Rancho Los Nietos into five parts.  The 28,027 acre Rancho Los Alamitos was one of five ranchos that was created from the division of the original Rancho Los Nietos. 

Juan Jose Nieto, the eldest son of Manuel Nietos was given Rancho Los Alamitos and the 48,806-acre Rancho Los Coyotes. The city of Cypress lies on part of the 28,027 acre Rancho Los Alamitos. On February 2, 1848, all of California was ceded to the United States pursuant to the Treaty of Guadalupe Hidalgo.  Rancho Los Alamitos was subsequently sold to other parties.

In the 1890s, the area now known as Cypress, was a rural agricultural area that grew a variety of products, including sugar beets, white and sweet potatoes.  The area was called Waterville because of the numerous artesian wells in the region.  In 1895, the Cypress school district was started.  In 1899, George Miller, known as the “Father of Cypress,” moved to the area, and settled on an 80-acre cattle ranch.

In 1907, George Miller opened his own milk depot, and in 1910, he founded the Southern California Dairy Association. Other important early settlers in Waterville were Mr. & Mrs. S.O. Walker, Mr. & Mrs. H. LaRue and Mr. & Mrs. J.P. Moody.  Also, S. O. Walker laid out a townsite for the area.  In 1905, the Pacific Trolley developed a station in town which was named the Cypress Station. 

In the 1940s, dairy farmers from Los Angeles moved into Waterville and the surrounding areas.  The local dairies became the community’s leading industry.  By 1954, nearly half of Orange County’s dairy farms were in Cyprus and the surrounding area.  The railroad depot opened in 1906, and milk and other products were shipped to Los Angeles.

On July 24, 1956, the Waterville township was incorporated, renamed Dairy City and the first City Council was elected.  In 1957, the town held another election and renamed Dairy City to the City of Cypress.  After World War II, the dairy farms gave way to residential development.  By 1970, there were no more dairy farms in Cypress.

Today, Cypress is a diverse and multi-cultural city.  It is a suburban residential community with commuter access to Los Angeles and nearby cities, as well as, easy access to nearby Seal Beach.  Cypress is home to the Los Alamitos Race Course which represents a large tax revenue source for the city.
