Once predominantly agricultural, the San Gabriel Valley has now become almost entirely urbanized and is one of the most diverse areas in the county.
Some of the neighborhoods that comprise the San Gabriel Valley include Pasadena, South Pasadena, Altadena, Alhambra, Monrovia, Azusa, Sierra Madre, San Marino and Arcadia. Northeast Los Angeles lies just to the west, while the San Gabriel Valley extends further east towards the Inland Empire.
During the late 1700s, the Mission San Gabriel was established. Eventually the entire valley came under the control of the mission and the area was known for its groves of orange trees, avocados, and more.
Pasadena became the first independent city to incorporate within Los Angeles County in 1886, and its history is well-reflected in the homes and architecture that fill the streets.
During the 1940s and 1950s, the San Gabriel Valley shifted from acres of farmland to suburban bedroom communities. In 1957 the 10 freeway opened, connecting the area to downtown LA.
