History of San Gabriel
San Gabriel’s roots begin with the 18th-century missionaries and the establishment of the San Gabriel Mission. After the United States took control of the lands and distributed it to private ranchers, San Gabriel transformed from a place of worship into a small town lined with orange groves and cattle. After the completion of the railroads passing the town, San Gabriel began to experience growth, leading to the incorporation of a city in 1923.
Often regarded as the birthplace of San Gabriel is a unique city in Southern California since it is not afraid to interweave its historic past in modern times. With many beautiful Mission-style buildings lining up the streets, it is safe to say that the spirit of the Mission still lives on today.
