Felicity is an unincorporated community in Imperial County, California,[1][2] It lies at an elevation of 285 feet (87 m).[1]

Founded on May 11, 1986, the town "Dedicated to Remembrance" was named for his wife Felicia by founder Jacques-Andre Istel. It is accessible from Interstate 8 in the far southeast of the state, just west of Yuma, Arizona.[3]

Jacques-Andre and Felicia Istel had it officially declared as the "Center of the World", and have developed the Museum of History in Granite.[2][3]
