About the Author

The Placentia Historical Committee is an official group formed by the City of Placentia in 1985 to advise its government on matters of understanding, preserving, and celebrating the city’s history. The committee, led by longtime residents Jeanette Gardner and Lawrence de Graaf, organized the city’s archives into this nostalgic window on Placentia’s past, to a time when Orange County truly reflected its name.
