February 10, 1870

The California city of Anaheim is incorporated. Its name is a blend of "Ana" (after the Santa Ana River) and "heim" (which means home in German). First founded in 1857 by grape farmers and wine makers from Franconia in Bavaria, Anaheim will become world famous in 1955 as the home of Disneyland.
