The pleasant city of Whittier CA was named after the poet John Greenleaf Whittier. The poet never visited the city, but he did write a dedication poem for the city’s Quaker founders and today visitors can learn about the poet at the small Whittier Museum. The city of Whittier CA was famous for its walnuts and citrus fruits, and was also a major producer of pampas grass for many years. After WWII, the city quickly grew as orange groves in Whittier CA were turned into new housing developments to address the housing shortage elsewhere in LA. Whittier CA has definitely grown into a great place to live with many amenities. Residents of Whittier CA seeking expert dental care can find it at California Dental Group.
