Los Alamitos History

Los Alamitos was originally an Indian village inhabited by the Puvu Indians. The land was explored by Gaspar De Portola and his team in 1769. John Bixby of the Rancho Los Alamitos purchased the land that is today Los Alamitos, and the deal was financed by his cousins and banker I.W. Hellman. John died in 1888 and the ranch was divided between the three owning families. During the mid 1890s, the Bixbys contracted with Montana silver baron William A. Clark and provided the land to build a new sugar beet factory. Subsequently, the town of Los Alamitos was incorporated in 1960.
