Fountain Valley California is a charming community of tree lined streets, peaceful residential homes and well-planned recreational areas in the center of Orange County, 30 miles southeast of Los Angeles, and 90 miles northwest of San Diego.

History of Fountain Valley: The history of Fountain Valley began in the 18th Century when the King of Spain granted the land to one of his Dons. Fountain Valley sits on a portion of land which was part of the Las Bolsas Land Grant. This land was later given to an ex-soldier, Manuel Nieto, in 1784 by the Spanish Governor Pedro Fages.

Upon the conclusion of the Mexican-American War, the United States Government officially recognized several of the old Spanish Land Grants and reverted them to their original owners. At a public land auction in the 1850's, Abel Stearns bought the land and renamed it The Stearns Ranch Company. This area comprised portions of what are now the cities of Huntington Beach, Westminster, Garden Grove and all of Fountain Valley.

The name Fountain Valley is derived from the many artesian wells and the abundant local water supply. In 1957 Fountain Valley was incorporated as Orange County's twenty-first city and the present total population is approximately 57,000.
