A rich history surrounded Mission Viejo living before it became the popular master planned community that it is today. Way back in 1769, the land that is now Mission Viejo was first claimed by Gaspar de Portola for his home country of Spain. Then in 1776, Spanish missionaries settled there when they were working on establishing a mission. Rancho Mission Viejo consisted of 52,000 beautiful acres, but a lack of water caused the mission to be relocated nearer to the ocean, later becoming the famed San Juan Capistrano Mission. The name remained although the mission didn't, and then construction commenced in the 1960's when Mission Viejo emerged as one of the country's first master planned communities. To this day, the majority of the architecture in Mission Viejo is still a nod to its Spanish influence.
Today, Mission Viejo has become a family-oriented community that is home to almost 100,000 residents who are enjoying the pleasures of living in Mission Viejo. This master planned community has 52 parks and two excellent school districts, Capistrano Unified School District and Saddleback Valley Unified School District.
