La Palma Facts
La Palma criminal defense attorneys know that geographically speaking, La Palma is Orange County’s smallest city, with less than two square miles of territory. It is home to nearly 17,000 residents. In the early 20th century the region was mostly home to dairy farms. In fact, when it first incorporated as a city it was named “Dairyland”. In the 1940’s a flood of young men and women poured into Southern California as America went to war against Germany and Japan. Many of these people returned to the area after the war and Southern California’s population grew sharply. The housing crunch rapidly drove land prices up and the beautiful dairy land was quickly paved over and covered with houses and roads. It was renamed “La Palma” after its main thoroughfare.
