DIAMOND BAR
California, U.S.A.
DIAMOND OVER A BAR
Welcome to Diamond Bar, California.
Diamond Bar is a city of around 56,500 people, situated in Los Angeles County at the junction of the Pomona and Orange freeways. The city is primarily residential, with a few shopping centers spread throughout. Numerous suburban cities surround Diamond Bar, including Brea, Walnut, Chino Hills and Rowland Heights. The history of Diamond Bar dates back to 1840, when Jose de la Luz Linares received the Mexican land grant Rancho Los Nogales from Governor Juan Alvarado. The land grant encompassed Brea Canyon and eastern Walnut Valley, and when Linares died in 1847, his widow sold part of it to a man named Ricardo Veiar. The City of Diamond Bar was incorporated in 1989, and was named after the diamond over a bar branding iron registered in 1981 by ranch owner Frederick E. Lewis. The suburban city is today one of the most affluent areas in the country, with a median household income that falls at one of the top earning percentiles in the United States. As time went on and the United States government took over California, Rancho Nogales was divided and sold into several land ranches. The largest of these was Diamond Bar Ranch, which at the time was one of the largest operating cattle ranches in the western part of the country. In the 1950s, the Transamerica Corporation embarked on a mission to develop one of the nation's first master-planned communities and eventually acquired all of Diamond Bar Ranch for that purpose. Aside from naming the city, Transamerica also incorporated the ranch's signature diamond and bar cattle brand into various logos, many of which are still in use today. The first homes in the master-planned community of Diamond Bar were built in 1960s, and were situated adjacent to modern day's Pomona Freeway. The freeway was developed ten years after the fact, and largely contributed to the rapid development and growth of the city.
