YORBA LINDA, CALIFORNIA OVERVIEW
Yorba Linda is a city located in northeastern Orange County, California. It is approximately 9.6 miles from Anaheim, 12.6 miles from Santa Ana, 33.6 miles from Long Beach and 34.5 miles from Los Angeles. According to the 2022 Data Census, Yorba Linda’s estimated population is 67,089.
Yorba Linda is the ancestral home of the Tongva, Luiseno and Juaneno Indian Tribes, who lived near Yorba Linda and the Santa Ana River thousands of years before the European expeditions and settlors ventured into the area. Many of the native tribes were decimated by disease, military and civilian conflict and forced evacuations onto reservations.
Yorba Linda was built on part of Rancho Canon de Santa Ana, a land grant awarded to Bernardo Yorba by the Mexican Governor, Jose Figueroa in 1834. Bernardo Yorba was a descendant of a member of Don Gaspar de Portola’s 1769 Spanish expedition to California. Bernardo Yorba successfully preserved his Mexican land holdings in California after the Mexican-American War in 1848.
After Bernardo Yorba died, one of his 20 children, Profirio Yorba sold part of the Rancho in 1907. Subsequently, Janss Investment Company of Los Angeles purchased the Yorba land and developed residential and agricultural lots for sale in 1909. In the early years Yorba Linda’s economy was primarily based on cattle ranches and agriculture that produced lemon and orange groves, avocados, tomatoes and cabbage crops.
Yorba Linda is also known for Richard Nixon’s birthplace. Mr. Nixon was born on January 9, 1913. Richard Nixon became the thirty-seventh President of the United States. His birthplace is a National Historic Landmark. And, the Richard Nixon Presidential Library and Museum are located in Yorba Linda.
Orange County including Yorba Linda utilized workers from the Bracero program. Labor shortages during World War II led the U.S. government to negotiate with the Mexican government to recruit Mexican workers, all male and without their families, to work on short-term contracts in U.S. agriculture and in other war industries. After the war, Mexican workers were restricted to agriculture. Apparently, Yorba Linda did not allow the Bracero workers to reside in their town and compelled the Bracero workers to stay in segregated sections of nearby Placentia. In 1964, Civil Rights and labor leaders effectively campaigned for the Bracero Program’s dissolution.
Yorba Linda had a development boom when it incorporated as a city in 1967. It also had a population surge in the 1960’s and another population expansion in the 1990’s. Today, Yorba Linda is known as a suburban community of the Greater Los Angeles Metropolitan Area. It is primarily residential with park land, open space, and over 100 miles of coordinated trails for bikers, hikers and equestrians.
