We are proud of our local history and wish to share it with you. Histories of the area are available through several publications, including our most recent Images of America: Santa Fe Springs, available for purchase at the Santa Fe Springs City Library, Heritage Park, and through your local booksellers.
The following is not intended to be a written history of the development of the City of Santa Fe Springs, but merely a guide to its development in order to gain some perspective of the past. The majority of the material described below has been extracted from newsletter articles written by former Santa Fe Springs Cultural Arts Administrator Margaret Hammon. Additional material has been derived from other sources which are listed in the reference section.
