Facts for Renters About Hawaiian Gardens
- The land Hawaiian Gardens now stands on was once marshland filled with bears and other wildlife. It was inhabited by the Tong-va Native Americans, who called the area Puvungna.
- The city is named after a stand that was constructed in the area. During the Prohibition era, it served drinks, sandwiches and, reportedly, if one knew how to ask, illegal alcoholic beverages. Even after the business left, the name for the area stuck.
- Hawaiian Gardens was once the site of an oil rush, after a team digging to find water to end a drought came up instead with what they called "black gold." However, after more digging, those looking for oil found that there wasn't any more, and the city went back to its quiet lifestyle.
