Los Alamitos (“The Little Cottonwoods” in Spanish) is a small city in Orange CountyCalifornia. The city was incorporated in March 1960. The population was 11,449 at the 2010 census, down from 11,536 at the 2000 census. It is often[citation needed] mistakenly thought[who?] to include the adjacent but unincorporated community ofRossmoor (population just under 11,000), which uses Los Alamitos as its mailing address. Although Rossmoor is not part of Los Alamitos, it is speculated[who?] that it may be annexed to the city, or Rossmoor, Seal Beach, and Los Alamitos will combine to form one city.[5] The Los Alamitos Race Course is also widely believed[who?] to be in the city; although it does have a Los Alamitos postal address and zip code, it actually lies in the neighboring city of Cypress.  Los Alamitos CA Homes for Sale

The USA Water Polo National Aquatic Center[6] is located on the US Military Los Alamitos Joint Forces Training Base,[7] which includes the Los Alamitos Army Airfield.  Los Alamitos CA Homes for Sale

The clusters of cottonwood trees Spanish explorers saw more than 200 years ago inspired Los Alamitos’ name, but it is the sugar beet that figured most prominently in the area’s later history. The history of the area during the Californio period and after U.S. annexation is detailed in the article on Rancho Los Alamitos.  Los Alamitos CA Homes for sale

The individual history of Los Alamitos separate from the rancho begins with the purchase by John Bixby of the Rancho Los Alamitos. John put together a consortium of himself, his cousins Lewellyn and Jotham (owners of Rancho Los Cerritos) and banker I.W. Hellman to finance the purchase of the Los Alamitos land. Upon John’s sudden death on 7 May 1887,[8] the ranch was divided between the three owning families. The northern third—the land roughly north of present Orangewood Ave.—went to the Lewellyn-Jotham faction (which later became the Bixby Land Company). By the mid-1890s, after the crash following the land boom of the 1880s—this group was relatively cash-poor and land rich. Having experimented in Northern California with sugar beets, the Bixbys agreed to provide the land, and contracted with Montana silver baron William A. Clark to provide the capital, and got E.A. Dyer to provide the expertise to build a new sugar beet factory on the Bixby’s land. The community that grew up around this new sugar beet factory complex—with its streets of company houses for workers and surrounding farms—came to be called Los Alamitos. (As part of his arrangement to build and operate the sugar beet factory, William Clark and his brother H. Ross, who actually ran the Los Alamitos operation, also arranged to purchase significant area east of the factory as well as 8,000 acres (32 km2) of land north of the sugar plant—most of the latter in the Rancho Los Cerritos boundaries—that would eventually become the city of Lakewood. Also, Clark and Hellman were intricately involved with the machinations and corporate dealings of railroad tycoon E. H. Harriman and Henry Edwards Huntington and the destiny of the Southern Pacificin Southern California. In addition, some time after establishing Los Alamitos, the Clarks completed their railroad from Los Angeles to Salt Lake City, establishing the desert stop of Las Vegas in the process.  Los Alamitos CA Homes for Sale
