Incorporated in 1909, Huntington Beach was once a cattle route and a haven for agriculture. Once known as Shell Beach, the Town of Smeltzer, and the Gospel Swamp, thanks to many revival meetings, the city was eventually named for railroad magnate Henry E. Huntington. Huntington created a development company that is responsible for much of the modern landscape, commerce, and industry of the city.
Once situated on a rich wealth of oil reserves, those reserves were long ago mined and depleted. However, companies still mine the region and extract reserves at a slow rate. The city does have an off-shore terminus for the tankers that support the Alaska Pipeline. The main economic focus for the city lies in its flourishing tourism industry.
Since Huntington Beach, CA features a slightly more low-key atmosphere than neighboring Newport Beach, celebrities who keep homes in this area keep it a bit quieter. However, celebrities like Sandra Bullock and Robert Downey Jr. once had properties in the area.
Along with the beautiful beach views, new homeowners in the area will love sites such as the Huntington Beach Pier, the Huntington Dog Beach, the Bolsa Chica Ecological Reserve, Huntington Central Park, and Huntington Beach State Park.
