Settlement in Bellflower dates all the way back to the late 1700s, when the first Spanish Land Grants were made in California. Over the years, it changed hands many times as the identity of modern California was forged. By the mid-1800s it was largely open land and was a favored fishing and hunting spot for residents of many nearby cities. In the early 1900s, the Pacific Electric Railway began spreading from Los Angeles and through the post-war boom in Southern California, Bellflower remained a favored place to live and raise a family. The city was officially incorporated in 1957 and is named for the Bellefleure apple that was common in the area once upon a time.
The Bellflower Unified School District is well regarded and stresses a strong value on the education of every student. Graduating high school students have a tremendous number of options for higher education – including California State University-Long Beach, Cypress College and Biola University – within an easy drive of Bellflower.
It goes without saying that any community in Southern California is going to have easy access to beach, desert, mountain and world famous attractions such as Disneyland and Hollywood. However, what makes Bellflower a happy home for so many residents is that after enjoying all that Southern California has to offer, they can come home to a community that feels like family.
