In 1845, a Mexican land grant handed over a parcel to a pair of Americans who eventually sold the plot to “Lucky” Baldwin. The Baldwins subdivided their land, and established a sprawling plot of orchards in the area now known as Hacienda Heights.
The agricultural plot boasted rows of walnut, avocado, and citrus trees. However, citrus trees, which made up the majority of the orchard’s footprint, were becoming increasingly unprofitable during the 1920s and 1930s due to pests that farmers couldn’t seem to eradicate. As a result, the land slowly began to be converted to a suburb.
Today, the proud bedroom community is known as Hacienda Heights, a name it has sported since 1961. The Hsai Lai Temple, a Buddhist temple within Hacienda Heights, is the largest of its kind in all of North America. Its size? A sprawling, almost incomprehensible 102,000 square feet.
