The name of the City derives from the Spanish word “Artesian Aquifer.” according to Wikipedia. Artesia is an incorporated city (1959) within Los Angeles county. The citys’ iconic water tower used to be green and has a somewhat mysterious past. Back in the 1920s and 1930s, Dutch and Portuguese farmers settled in the area. At that time, Artesia, as it is known today, was an agricultural-based village. However, the vibrant and multi-ethnic City has significantly transformed from the rural beginnings of dairy farms.
