  • History

    Initially settled by a populace hungry for wealth with the promise of gold mining in the city of Alta, people slowly migrated south toward the San Gabriel Valley, finding places to raise their children on once uncultivated fields. In 1771, eight years before our forefathers founded this country, most of the land comprising what's now Alhambra's borders belonged to the Spanish government under a land grant to Mission San Gabriel, leading to years-long court battles over 300,000 acres of property owned by Manuel Nieto.

    After centuries of war and struggle over territory, land acquisition finally led to tracts of land being laid out for the Southern Pacific Railroad, which would bring with it settlers from the East coast looking for a future in uncharted territories. This migration further solidified the legacy that is now Alhambra, California.

    Anyone interested in local history can visit the Alhambra Historical Society Museum on Alhambra Rd.
