Fullerton was once inhabited by an American Indian tribe that the Spaniards called Gabrielinos. IN 1769, Gaspar de Portola led an expedition through Southern California. The Fullerton area later became part of Rancho san Juan Cajon de Santa Ana. This range was a land grant given to Juan Pacifico Ontiveros.

Juan Pacifico Ontiveros began selling parts of the Rancho to American settlers. Abel Stearns, who was responsible for developing multiple cities in Orange County, bought the Fullerton area. Stearns sold the land to Domingo Bastanchury.

In 1886, George and Edward Amergie bought 430 acres in the Fullerton area. The brothers had heard that the California Central Railroad, a subsidiary of Sante Fe Railway, was looking for land. The brothers began negotiating with George H. Fullerton, president of Pacific Land and Improvement Company, another Sante Fe subsidiary. In the end, the railroad was given permission to build on the Amerige land if Fullerton’s survey included a proposed town site.

Fullerton would soon experience a boom. In 1880, drilling for petroleum began. Charles Chapman purchased an orange orchard in eastern Fullerton, in 1894. The oranges flourished.
