From Indian villages to modern master-planned communities, Orange County’s place names take us through the history of California’s second largest county. Over the years, residents have all left their imprint on Orange County by naming the places where they lived and worked. Spanish land grants, Mexican ranchos, Indian villages, family farms, tiny settlements, and short-lived post offices—each has made a permanent mark by putting a place name in print or on a map. Here, in over 500 alphabetical listings, comprehensively cited, are nearly 1,000 of these revealing portals into history.
