You may have hiked Murphy Ranch, but do you know its history? In this video, we explore the history of Whittier, particularly the old Murphy Ranch & what is now known as Murphy Ranch Park (formerly known as Wilderness Park).
Simon J. Murphy founded the East Whittier Land and Water Company, along with the Murphy Oil Company. He also owned citrus orchards and developed real estate. His office is still standing today, located behind the California Domestic Water Company building (15505 Whittier Blvd, Whittier, CA 90603), but it was moved there from its original location in the epicenter of Murphy Ranch. Go check it out to see a piece of Whittier history, and let me know what you think!
Friendly Hills, La Serna High School, the Friendly Hills Country Club, and Murphy Ranch Park all are situated on land once used by Murphy for his ranch and orchards. I’m so glad they left a piece of land as a park for the public to enjoy! If you haven’t already hiked this trail, you should check it out. It’s just one more reason why Whittier is the best suburb of Los Angeles.
