As recently as the 1970’s the town was largely agricultural, with cash crops of almonds, alfalfa, and turkeys. The almond orchards being crippled by disease and the alfalfa growers having to contend with their water rights being diverted to a growing Los Angeles caused a significant shift in the local work force. The shift mainly was toward the nearby aerospac plants of Lockheed Martin and Rockwell International. Its fields long empty, Quartz Hill still celebrates the Almond Blossom Festival every yea.
