About Artesia

Artesia is a small city in southeast Los Angeles County, California, United States and is one of the Gateway Cities. It was incorporated on May 29, 1959. The population was 16,380 at the 2000 census. Artesia is surrounded on the west, south, and east sides by Cerritos, with Norwalk to the north.

Artesia is the home of the East West Ice Palace, an ice rink which is co-owned by Michelle Kwan. It also was the childhood home (1914 until 1931) of former First Lady Pat Nixon, though the house in which she grew up is now part of neighboring Cerritos.

Although Artesia is best known for the "Little India" section of Pioneer Boulevard, there are also many Filipino, Mexican, Chinese, and Korean-owned stores and residences in the area, as well as Portuguese and other Caucasian-owned stores and residences.

 

History

The village of Artesia was established upon the completion of the Artesia School District on May 3, 1875. It was named for the many flowing Artesian wells in the area, which made the village ideal for farming and agriculture.

In the 1920s and 1930s, Dutch and Portuguese farmers developed Artesia into one of the most important dairy districts in Southern California. After World War II, as with many other cities in the region, Artesia was pressured by developers to build residential tracts. The city of Dairy Valley was incorporated in 1956, and later became the city of Cerritos. As the demand for housing continued, dairymen moved their operations further east into Chino and north into the Central Valley. Artesia finally incorporated on May 29, 1959.

In 1993, the Artesia Historical Society was formed, with the mission of preserving and protecting the archives and historic sites of the city. In 2002, the Historical Society salvaged and restored one of the last remaining Spanish styled homes in the city into a historical civic museum open to the public. [1]

One of the more familiar landmarks in the city is the Artesia Water Tower. Not much is known about its active past or when it was constructed. The City of Artesia is currently trying to have the tower declared as a Historical Lankmark and is asking its citizens for historical information and photos of the tower.

The water tower can hold 50,000 gallons of water and was once owned by the Southern California Water Company before being sold to the City of Artesia in 1988. The tower was intended to be used only as a point of historical interest, and to provide a special identity to the community. Shortly after its purchase, the then green tower was quickly painted to its current color with the addition of the name Artesia painted on two sides.

It sits on top of an artesian well in 1911, however, no record of its construction can be found. Although it may have once been a smaller wooden tower, to qualify for historic designation in California, factual documentation must be presented.

The Artesia Water Tower was also featured in the motion picture, Freddy's Dead: The Final Nightmare in 1991 and was known in the film as the Springwood Water Tower. [2]

It was also featured in an episode of My Name is Earl, in 2006.

 

Little India

Pioneer Boulevard in Artesia, an area informally known as Little India for the large number of the Indian-owned businesses there.

There is a large number of Indian-owned stores and restaurants along Pioneer Blvd. in Artesia. Despite this concentration of Indian-owned businesses, Asian Indians made up only 4.6% of the population of Artesia in the 2000 Census [3].

Little India draws customers from the large population of expatriates from the Indian subcontinent living in the Greater Los Angeles Area, as well as from across the United States. There is also a small number of Indian-owned shops and a theater showing Bollywood movies on South Street in nearby Lakewood.

Proposals have often been made to designate a portion of the city as "Little India" (along the lines of Little Saigon in nearby Westminster and Garden Grove). Another proposal has been for a "Little India" sign at the Pioneer Blvd. exit off of the Artesia Freeway. Opposition, primarily from other ethnicities in the city, has so far stymied such plans.
