History

the text in this section is copied from an article in Wikipedia

The name Crest is actually the result of the combination of the previously named La Cresta (in the northern part of the community), and Suncrest (in the southern part of the community). Crest was twice devastated by wildfires: first by the Laguna Fire in 1970 then again by the Cedar Fire in 2003.

Gregory Peck once owned a summer home in Crest.
