History of Laguna Niguel

The name Laguna Niguel is derived from the Spanish word “laguna,” a reference to the tidal lagoon that once formed at the mouth of Aliso Creek, and the word “Niguili,” the name of an Acjachemen village that occupied the area. During the 1700s, Spanish missionaries established Mission San Juan Capistrano and primarily used the land to raise sheep. 

In 1895, Rancho Niguel was purchased by the Moulton Company, which used the land for raising sheep and orchards. In 1959, Laguna Niguel became one of the first master-planned communities in California. Laguna Niguel has remained true to its agrarian roots, as more than one-third of the city is designated as open space.
