About Whittier

Whittier, CA is a city located in Los Angeles County, about 12 miles southeast of downtown Los Angeles. The city was founded in 1887 and was named after the famous poet John Greenleaf Whittier. Whittier is known for its rich history and diverse community.

One interesting fact about Whittier is that it is home to the Los Angeles County Department of Public Works, which is responsible for maintaining and improving the county's infrastructure, including its extensive network of roads and highways. This makes Whittier an important hub for freight transportation in the region, as many trucks and commercial vehicles pass through the city on their way to other parts of Southern California.

Another interesting aspect of Whittier's transportation history is its connection to the Southern Pacific Railroad. The city was once a major stop on the railroad's main line between Los Angeles and San Francisco. Today, the historic Whittier Depot still stands as a reminder of the city's railroad heritage. While passenger service no longer operates, the rail line still sees freight trains passing through Whittier, carrying goods and materials to and from the region.
