The City of Fullerton, Orange County, CA

Founding and Early History

Fullerton was established in 1887 by two grain merchants from Massachusetts and was named after George H. Fullerton, a railroad executive who was instrumental in building the city's first railroad. Situated 22 miles southeast of Los Angeles, Fullerton has grown to become one of the largest cities in Orange County. It is celebrated for its exemplary educational institutions and historic Downtown district, noted for its Renaissance and Spanish Colonial architecture, giving it a distinct old town atmosphere.

The Citrus Boom

The roots of Fullerton's citrus industry date back to 1875, when the first commercial Valencia orange grove was planted on the grounds of what is now California State University, Fullerton. This began a citrus boom that would define the region for decades. The subsequent discovery of oil in 1880 further propelled economic growth and prosperity.

Educational Foundations and Growth

With the population on the rise, the demand for educational institutions increased. In 1957, what is now known as California State University, Fullerton, was established as the 12th state college in California, highlighting the city's commitment to academic excellence. The university officially moved to its current location on State College Boulevard in 1963.

Post-War Expansion and Development

The post-World War II era saw a surge in housing and business development as the city transitioned from agricultural to industrial dominance. This period marked significant urban expansion and economic diversification within Fullerton.

Cultural Landmarks: The Fox Fullerton Theater

One of Fullerton’s most iconic landmarks is the Fox Fullerton Theater. Built in the 1920s Movie Palace era and originally named "Chapman’s Alician Court Theatre," the theater was a hub for Hollywood legends like Douglas Fairbanks and Judy Garland. By the 1990s, the theater and many of Fullerton's historic sites had fallen into disrepair. Efforts to restore the Fox Fullerton Theater culminated in the late 1990s, with it being listed on the National Register of Historic Places, supported by state funds and community donations, including a pivotal $1 million contribution.

Innovations and Fun Facts

Fullerton has been a site of innovation and creativity. Notably, in 1934, the original Hawaiian Punch recipe was concocted here. Additionally, in 1949, Leo Fender designed the first mass-produced electric guitar, the Fender Stratocaster, marking Fullerton as an important place in musical history.

Today, Fullerton continues to celebrate its rich history with 23 buildings listed on the National Register of Historic Places, preserving its heritage and continuing to inspire both residents and visitors alike.

It's not often these days to find a company whose folks are happy to go the extra mile for their customers, but Entry Systems is definitely one of them. Even though they no longer service my '80s era residential lift system, with their expert guidance I was able to diagnose and resolve the problem in very little time. This kind of customer service is truly extraordinary!

I found this company via referral. Needed my garage door springs checked. Jacob arrived during the specified window. Super nice, explained what he would inspect. I suspected that the main spring would need replacement given its age, and sure enough he confirmed that. He replaced the spring in a timely and efficient manner. I can definitely tell a difference in terms of noise and smooth operation. Very satisfied with the work and would definitely recommend.
