The city was originally part of a large 1810 land grant from the Spanish government known as Rancho Santiago de Santa Ana. The recipient of the grant was a former Spanish soldier named Jose Antonio Yorba, whose son Bernardo would later combine his father’s lands with those granted to him by the Mexican government. In 1908 the Janss Investment Company bought part of the land and named it “Yorba Linda” before subdividing and selling it. The community slowly grew; it’s most notable native being Richard Milhous Nixon, who was born here in 1913 and went on to become the thirty-seventh President of the United States. During the 1960s the population of the small town increased tenfold, and in 1967 it became incorporated as a city.
The birthplace of Richard M. Nixon, is also the site of the Richard Nixon Library & Birthplace, a privately supported institution dedicated to educating the public about the life and times of the nation’s 37th President. Also here is the historic Susanna Bixby Bryant Ranch, site of the Heritage Museum where visitors can trace area’s unique heritage from Indian times to the first settlement by the Yorba family, and into the modern age. Lovers of the performing arts can enjoy the Civic Light Opera, which offers professional musical entertainment at the city’s beautiful Forum Theater. The last Saturday of every October is the annual Fiesta Days Parade and Family Faire. Festivities include live entertainment, a play zone for kids and great food.
