Living in Diamond Bar, CA
Similar to many other cities in the Los Angeles area, the history of Diamond Bar began with a Mexican land grant in the early 1800s. From then until the 1950s, the area was owned by many wealthy ranchers who cultivated the land, peppered the area with beautiful walnut trees and raised many herds of cattle. It wasn't until the mid-20th century that the Transamerica Corporation began to develop the area into a residential community outside of Los Angeles that would one day become one of Southern California's most prized communities. Today, the area has received numerous awards, including being one of the only five California cities to be named CNN's Money Magazine's 2012 "Best Places to Live" and one of Businessweek's "Top 50 Places to Raise Your Kids."
