Hidden Hills

January 9, 2023

Loraine (formerly, Paris and Paris-Loraine) is an unincorporated community in Kern County, California. It is located on the east bank of the mouth of Indian Creek where it enters Caliente Creek, 12 miles north of Tehachapi, at an elevation of 2,671 feet.

The Paris post office opened in 1903, changed its name to Loraine in 1912, closed in 1918, re-opened in 1922, and closed for good in 1926. The place was originally settled by French and Alsatian miners.
