Placentia, meaning pleasant, is in north Orange County, near Fullerton and Yorba Linda. It is home to over 45,000 people, and is known for a simple, family centric, lifestyle. Charming small town atmosphere, two high schools, a large number of athletic and cultural opportunities for youth, and many annual heritage events and parades make Placentia a great place to bring up a family. This Orange County town has transformed itself, in recent years, from an agricultural area to a bedroom community. Once, the people who called Placentia home worked their own land and grew crops and fruits. Today, most residents travel outside the city to work, commuting daily to other urban areas. The last few orange groves that are scattered around the city have already been earmarked to make way for the final transformation of more urban development.
Settlers first arrived in this area over a hundred years ago. In 1837, the governor of Mexico first granted the land which included the area that is Placentia today, to Juan Ontiveros. The first pioneers purchased land here in 1865, and soon settlers began to arrive and build homesteads, churches and schools. The first crops were vegetables, walnuts, some common oranges seen as inferior in quality. Orange county founder Alfred B. Chapman then imported Valencia orange trees, and the first grove was planted, in Placentia, in 1880 by Richard Gilman. This was the first commercial grove in the county of an orange that would go on to lend its name to the entire county. The Valencia orange went on to become the biggest crop in the area, and in the entire county. The decline of orange farming in Placentia began with a disease called quick decline, and was further accelerated by the population explosion during the mid to late twentieth century. Oil had a part in Placentia history, when oil was discovered on C.C. Chapman's land in the northeast and on Samuel Kraemer's land around 1919. The city was incorporated in 1926, and was the smallest in Orange County.
Schools in Placentia are run by the Placentia-Yorba Linda Unified School District, which operates three high schools in the city. These are the El Dorado High School, the Valencia High School which is the oldest , and the El Camino Real High School. Placentia also has three public middle schools, a number of public elementary schools, and some Independent schools.
Recent exponential growth in population has not taken away the pleasantness of life in Placentia. Although it remains a fast-growing community, it has held on to its beautiful suburban homes, and paid special attention to ensure good schools. Its abundance of wholesome recreation has been an added factor.
