Orange, California, a city that started small, but grew big on the promise, sweat and toil of agriculture. Born from the breakup of the old Rancho Santiago de Santa Ana, its early days were filled with horse races, gambling, and fiestas. Citrus was the backbone of the economy for more than half a century, though post-war development eventually replaced the orange groves. Historian, and Orange native, Phil Brigandi traces the roots of the city back to its small town origins: the steam whistle of the Peanut Roaster, the citrus packers tissue-wrapping oranges for transport, Miss Orange leading the May Festival parade, and the students of Orange Union High painting the O and celebrating Dutch-Irish Days. In doing so, he captures what makes Orange distinct.

About the Author:

Phil Brigandi has been researching and writing local history since 1975. A native of Orange, he has always had a special interest in the history of his hometown. He joined the Board of Directors of the Orange Community Historical Society at age eighteen and published his first book on Orange five years later. He soon broadened his interest to include the rest of Orange County and served as county archivist from 2003 to 2008. He is the author of more than twenty books and hundreds of articles.
