San Gabriel Valley City Information


Welcome to the City of Alhambra, "Gateway to the San Gabriel Valley". The City is located on the eastern edge of Los Angeles, at the entrance to the San Gabriel Valley. The City was incorporated July 11, 1903. The principal part of the land within Alhambra's present boundaries was included in a 1771 grant made to Mission San Gabriel, five years before the birth of our nation. There were no orchards or vineyards in San Gabriel Valley then, only dry un-cultivated fields broken by arroyos and low-lying hills from the Mission San Gabriel west to the small Indian village called "Yang-na," which later become Los Angeles. Alhambra City Hall, 111 S 1st St., Alhambra, Phone: (626) 570-5000

The City of Arcadia is a jewel among Southland communities encompassing approximately 11 square miles of land in the westerly end of the San Gabriel Valley at the base of the an Gabriel Mountains. Located approximately 18 miles northeast of downtown Los Angeles, Arcadia is known as the "Community of Homes". It is a picturesque, affluent, largely built out, and primarily residential community. In addition to its residential sector, the Los Angeles County Arboretum, Santa Anita Fashion Park, Santa Anita Race Track, Arcadia County Park, and the Santa Anita Golf Course annually attract a substantial number of visitors into Arcadia from other communities. Arcadia City Hall, 240 W Huntington Dr., Arcadia, Phone: (626) 574-5400

El Monte
El Monte, as it has down through its 137 years of history, continues to offer a home for those who are seeking to put down roots. As with the immigrants of the early days, El Monte is still a haven for modern immigrants seeking new opportunities and respite from old oppressions. New immigrants bring fresh needs to the community. Needs, which in final analysis, still mean homes, jobs, schools, and churches. El Monte has met such needs, over and over again, through the course of its past. Whether those needs stemmed from displaced Spanish grandees, or from disillusioned miners retreating from false dreams, or from "Okie" migrants seeking land to replace their dust-blown farms - whatever these needs, and from whatever quarter they came - El Monte has been the wooded place of shelter and security, the meadowland of opportunity and promise.

Monterey Park
The end of World War II resulted in a revived growth trend and explosive population gains during the 1940's and 1950's.

With the renewed growth, many new subdivisions were developed, utilizing even the previously undeveloped central area to allow for maximum growth potential. A series of annexations of surrounding acreage also occurred. Monterey Park City Hall, 320 W Newmark Ave., Monterey Park, Phone: (626) 307-1338

Kiwanis International

The Knights of Columbus is a Catholic men's fraternal benefit society that was formed to render financial aid to members and their families.

Lions Clubs International
Since 1917, Lions clubs have offered people the opportunity to give something back to their communities. From involving members in projects as local as cleaning up an area park or as far-reaching as bringing sight to the world's blind, Lions clubs have always embraced those committed to building a brighter future for their community.
