The Landmark Project: CHL# 219

CHL# 219 ANAHEIM LANDING

Soon after the founding of the Mother Colony at Anaheim in 1857, the Anaheim Landing Company established Anaheim Landing as a port for the Santa Ana Valley. Despite treacherous entrance conditions that caused several disasters, regular coastwise trade was carried on here for about 15 years.

Christine’s Note:  This was a disappointing one.  The landmark is clearly the port, however the entire area of the coastline here is fenced off and only accessible through a private gated community. 

Descriptions of each landmark are from the California Office of Historical Preservation website.
