Fountain Valley Colonia Juarez

Fountain Valley
Orange County

"COLONIA JUAREZ"
A.k.a. The Swamp

Came to be established since the 1930's, right after the Mexican Revolution
Hence the name for the Barrio's 7 original streets which carry revolutionary names

INDEPENDENCIA
JUAREZ
CINCO DE MAYO
ZAPATA
MADERO
VILLA
ZARAGOSA

The place is listed on the maps of this present day, termed as The Colony
a mis-translation into the English dictionary from the Spanish for La Colonia
.. erroneously translated and with way different meanings in the two languages

in current maps, you can find the place just south of the Mile Square Golf Course
the cross streets being Warner Ave and Ward St

The modern day C J varrio as we tend to associate gangs with, started in the 1960s
with the CHEVELLES Car Club., then later they became the C J DEMONS

once they got started having trouble in the gang sense, it was with the close-by HxBs
~> with the Huntington Beach Clovers and MoTowns

C J ever since has remained very small and tight knit
and their representation became mostly defucnt by the 1980's
even so, they're still around

COLONIA JUAREZ DEMONS
"EL PANTANO BARRIO"
