The year of 1887 was the year of the greatest land boom in history. The officals of the Union Pacific and the Santa Fe Railroad lured thousands of home seekers to the Pacific Coast. A rate war raged so hotly that on one day, tickets sold from Kansas City to Los Angeles for only one dollar.From the Author:
A group of Quakers came to California in search of land. They found a piece up on the slope of the Puente Hills. They purchased it for the purpose of establishing a Quaker Colony. It covered one thousand acres and they paid fifty-five dollars an acre. They opened their town to all fair minded people. They put an ad in the Los Angeles paper. My Aunt Jenny read the ad and decided to attend the sale. That day she purchased three lots near the center of town for one hundred dollars each.
