TUSTIN: "The City of Trees!" This motto is very appropriate for the City of Tustin. This distinctive quality dates back hundreds of years. Evidence of this is documented from the 1760s when the first Europeans explored the area during the Portola Expedition. At the time, the land was dotted with massive, white-barked Sycamore trees. A few may still exist in the area! In the 1870s, the area became more popular when trains ran through the area and Tustin became an agricultural center with large orchards. The town grew more rapidly during WWII when the military established several bases in nearby bean fields. Post WWII, freeways, churches, schools, and homes were built to accomodate the expanding influx of former military GIs. Most of the orchards have disappeared now, but Tustin is still a proud historic area with some buildings dating back to the 1880s and some areas that are just being built. Tustin is a wonderful blend of old and new! However everyone can still see the trees!
ORANGE: The City of Orange is located approximately three miles north of the County Seat and was established in 1869 with a plot of land given to two attorneys. Orange is unusual in that many of the homes in its Old Town District were built prior to 1920 and saved for preservation. Many generations have lived and raised their families in these homes. Orange also has a central Plaza that was incorporated in 1888. It is only one of the very few cities to have such a feature. Orange has a vibrant commercial district containing Orange County's oldest operating bank and the oldest operating soda fountain. You may have seen the Plaza or Watson's Drug Store in the movies on more than one occasion. Today, the Historic District is listed on the National Register of Historic Places. However, Orange is not all about the "old." Newer home construction has continued on the East edge of town. Future plans continue to emerge to make Orange a wonderful place to raise a family, obtain college degrees, begin a business, and live life to the fullest.
