History of Rosemead
Originally agricultural land that was owned and administered by the San Gabriel Mission, the Mexican government, the governing body of California at the time, took possession of the lands thanks to the Secularization Act of 1833. This land was then divided and distributed to its citizens, weakening the San Gabriel Mission’s grasps. As many settlers came into Rosemead, the land incorporated into a city in 1959.
Today, the city asserts that its goals include enhancing Rosemead’s quality of life in a business-friendly atmosphere favorable to ongoing economic stability and growth. The city provides a desirable and affordable neighborhood to reside in, as well as a vibrant and evolving business sector that is a driver for economic growth in the West Coast market.
