Learn more about Cypress

The Gabrieleno were the first inhabitants of what is now known as Cypress. They were a Native American tribe of the Tongva people who were unfortunately displaced after the Europeans arrived to the area. For a while, the government of Spain had possession over the land until 1821 when Mexico gained its independence. After the Bear Flag Revolt and the Mexican-American War, Mexico lost Alta California to the United States.

 

Spanish dons domineered large portions of land all over California and one of the original dons was Manuel Nieto. His sons got title to Rancho Los Nietos after Manuel’s passing in 1804 but over time, the lands were subdivided and distributed among them in 1833. Juan Jose Nieto, one of Manuel’s sons, kept the title to a significant portion of the original lands which includes what we know of today as Cypress. Later, that land and other properties of the Rancho were sold to Abel Stearns, an American. Then it was acquired by the Robinson Trust which was a group of investors.

 

Although it was originally nicknamed “Waterville” because of the predominance of artesian wells surrounding the area, Cypress was incorporated as “Dairy City” in 1956. It was given this name by local dairy farmers as a way to deter developers so that the farmers could preserve their dairies.

 

The land became too valuable for farming or ranching after World War II, however and over time, the dairies sold out to housing developers. That transition started in the 1960s and by the 1970s there were no more dairies remaining.

 

Local residents voted to change the name of the city from “Dairy City” to “Cypress” in 1957. The name was derived from Cypress Elementary School which was originally built in 1895 and that school was named after the Cypress trees which were planted to protect the school from the seasonal Santa Ana winds. The annual birthday celebration of the city is called the Cypress Community Festival and is considered the largest single-day event in Orange County, California. It’s held on the 4th Saturday in July at Oak Knoll Park.

 

In the 1990s, it was well known as being the home of Tiger Woods who became the youngest #1 player in the history of golf at the time. The city is considered a bedroom community, consisting mostly of residential neighborhoods with only a few office and industrial placements here and there. Today, Cypress is a booming residential community.

 

The median household income is $93,137 as of 2019.

Population: Approximately 48,893 as of 2019
