Prior to Manuel Nieto's arrival there are traces of the Tongva tribes settling in the Huntington Beach area. Nieto arrived with a Spanish Land grant for 300,000 acres in 1784. It was then named Rancho Los Nietos. After a dispute with the Mission San Gabriel, Nieto saw his holdings reduced, but the reminding land area was still significant. It subsequently went through a number of names including Shell Beach and various other names before settling on Huntington Beach during its incorporation as a city on February 17, 1909.
