About this Collection

The digital La Habra Old Settlers Historical Society Collection includes images portraying the early history and development of the Orange County community of La Habra, Calif. and surrounding areas from 1896 to 1964. Many of the images cover early agriculture in La Habra (ranches, farms, farmhouses, agricultural laborers, agricultural machinery and implements, farming activities, and the early citrus fruit industry). Other topics important to La Habra's economic development are also portrayed, including the Pacific Electric Railway, and images of laborers constructing railroads and roads. Images related to pioneers and early residents George Beck, Leander Hodson, Willets J. Hole, John Launer, and Stephen M. Smith are included, as well as images related to early families (the Leutwiler family, the Luehm family, the Thuet family, and the Warne family). The history of education in La Habra is portrayed through views of several public schools. Clubs important in the early life of La Habra are also covered, including the Kiwanis Club of La Habra.
