Whittier CA History

The city's first residents were Quakers who named the place after John Greenleaf Whittier, a respected Quaker poet honored with statues and a small exhibit at the Whittier museum, a local park and at city hall. The first Quaker Meeting, "First Friends Church" still stands on Philadelphia Street.

Owners of Whittier property take the city's history seriously. Besides its historical museum, it hosts Founders' Day on the third Saturday in May. Talent and exhibits highlight the Native American, Mexican and Quaker residents of years past.

In 1987, the Whittier Narrows earthquake caused massive damage to historic buildings. Redevelopment followed as did an effort by the Whittier Conservancy to stop the demolition of many historic buildings. The city also created a Historic Resources Commission to oversee the approval of historic designations.

There's also the Little Old Bookshop, which offers a children's literature room, a romance novel section and "Plato's Cave," specializing in philosophy. Not far away is the Whittier Museum, which displays items that tell of the city's unique history. Nearby are two 18-hole golf courses and two with nine holes each.

The city's recreation makes Whittier real estate listings worthy reading. Whittier recently opened the Greenway Trail, a bicycle and pedestrian path that allows visitors to hike or bike through town.
