La Habra is a city in the northwestern corner of Orange County, California, United States. It is bordered by La Habra Heights on the north, Brea on the east, Fullerton on the south and southeast, La Mirada on the west and southwest and East Whittier on the west, Whittier on the northwest and a small unnamed section of unincorporated Los Angeles County on the northeast.
The name referred to the “Pass Through the Hills,” the natural pass through the hills to the north first discovered and used by Spanish explorers of the Portola expedition on July 30, 1769. For more than 70 years, La Habra was known as the city just south of La Habra Heights where the Hass avocado, of the Hass Avocado Mother Tree, was planted by Rudolph Hass in the 1920s. The fruit from this tree has since become one of the most popular avocado cultivars worldwide. The Hass Mother Tree succumbed to root rot in 2002.
The city of La Habra is mainly served by the La Habra City School District for elementary and middle school students and the Fullerton Joint Union High School District for high school students, but portions of La Habra are also redirected to other school districts closer to homes of some residents.Read More ▾
