In 1776, Mission San Juan Capistrano was established, and back then, Vallejo de Santa Ana' composed most of today's Orange County. After the Mexican-American war ended in 1848, the area became part of the United States and American settlers arrived in what is now Santa Ana. The city was incorporated as a city in 1886, and became the Orange County seat in 1889. In the 21st century, Santa Ana is a fully developed city with several distinct districts.
