Hope View Elementary School17622 Flintstone Lane Huntington Beach, CA 92647
About the Name
Many years ago encyclopedia companies bought sections of swamp land in Huntington Beach and subdivided them into approximately 25 × 50 foot lots. These lots were used to sell encyclopedias everywhere with the promise to get “California land” with a purchase of the books. These tracts of land were scattered throughout northern Huntington Beach. It was very time consuming to clear title to these lots but through condemnation proceedings, buildable sites could be realized.
Hope View got its name from the hope that all the legal hurdles could be met within a certain time line so that the District could purchase the site and build a school. It is a large site that the District obtained at the best kind of price—almost nothing!
