The City of Los Angeles was founded on the 4th day of
September, 1781, in conformity with the laws of Spain,
providing for the settlement and organization of towns
(pueblos) or municipal communities. The founders of the
town had, mostly, if not all, been soldiers; and, although
relieved from active service were entitled to and continued to
receive pay and rations during the supremacy of the Spanish
Government of California. The settlement consisted of
twelve families. One of the settlers was a widower having
one child, a daughter, aged eleven years. The others were
all married and eight of them had children. The eldest of
the settlers was sixty-seven years old, one was fifty-five and
three were fifty years of age, and one was forty-two and the
others were from nineteen--the youngest, an Indian--to
thirty-eight. The average age of the twelve male settlers
was thirty-nine and two-thirds years. There were eleven
married women, The whole number of children were
twenty-three, only three of which were over ten years old.
Eleven of the children were boys and twelve were girls.
The community numbered in all forty-six souls. Of the
twelve men, heads of families, two were Spaniards, two
mulattoes, two Negroes, four Indians, one Chinaman and one
half-breed (Indian and negro). Of the women, six were
mulattoes and five were Indians. The adults were natives of
Lower California, Sonora and Sinaloa, excepting the two
Spaniards and the Chinaman.

Each family was furnished from the royal treasury, with
two oxen, two mules, two mares, two sheep, two goats, two
cows with one calf, one ass and one hoe, and to the
community the necessary tools of a cart maker. These
articles, inclusive of the live stock, were all charged to the
individuals or the community at a price established by the
Government and that amount was to be deducted, in small
installments, from their pay.

For the town site a parallelogram one hundred varas
long by seventy five in width was laid out. Upon three sides
of this twelve were house lots, each forty by twenty varas,
excepting the two corner lots, which fronting in part on two
sides of the square were of a different figure. One-half the
remaining side of the parallelogram was open, the other half
was for the guard house, royal officers and a granary. The
location of this town site was above or northeast of the
present Catholic Church site. The guard house and royal
building which occupied the west half of the southwestern
side of the parallelogram were on the opposite side of Main
street from Campbell’s store. The four lines of the parallel-
ogram instead of running towards the four cardinal points
were about equi distant between these points. An irrigating
ditch bringing the water from the river passed along to the
east of and in the rear of and close to those lots no the
southeast corner of the square. Thirty fields for cultiva-
tion were also laid out. Twenty-six of these fields contained
each forty thousand square varas. They were, with the
exception of four, which were three hundred varas by one
hundred, two hundred varas square and separated by lanes
three varas wide. These fields were located between the
river and the irrigating ditch and mostly above a line
running direct and nearly east from the located town site to
the river. The distance from the irrigating ditch to the river
across these fields was upwards of twelve hundred varas.
At that time the river ran along by where now stands the
houses of Julian Chavis and Elijah Moulton, and the
easternmost of these fields were close to the river.

It is evident that when the town was laid out, the bluff
bank which in modern times extended from Aliso street up
by the Stearns Mill to the toma did not exist, but was made
when the river moved near the town.

The surnames of the twelve settlers were Lara, Navarro,
Rosas, Mesa, Villavicencio, Banegas, Rosas, Rodriguez,

Camero, Quintero, Mereno and Rodriguez. Subsequent to
the settlement of the town, the river abandoned its bed and
moved to the west side of all the fields and flowed along
where the Eagle Mill now stands, and where Aalmeda [sic] street
is now located. The old fields were either washed away or
covered up with sand by the change of the river’s bed. In
1825 the river again left its bed and made a new one nearly
intermediate between the two preceding ones.

From its settlement the growth of the town was very
slow for a period of fifty years. Its growth was dependent
upon the natural increase of the settlers by additional
soldiers, as they were from time to time relieved from active
service and permitted to make the town of Los Angeles their

About 1836 the town (pueblo) was created a city and
made the capital of Alta California by act of the Mexican
Congress, and the Governor, Don Carlos Carrillo, during his
brief administration made it the seat of the Civil Government.
After the expulsion of Micheltoreno it again became the seat
of Government under the administration of Don Pio Pico, in
1844, and so continued until the emigration, in August, 1846,
of the Mexican authorities upon the occupation of California
by the United States forces.

The corporate limits of the city extend one Spanish
league north, east and west, and one Spanish league and four
hundred yards south from the centre of the plaza. The Los
Angeles river, originally, called the Porciuncula, flows
through the city limits, a little east of the centre, in nearly
a south course. Nearly all the buildings and inhabitants of
the city are upon the west side of the river.

From some undefined cause the growth or extension of
the improved or built up part of the city has ever been in a
southwestly direction. Nothwithstanding that for a period
of sixty years, until 1832, the town was a quasi military post,
the able-bodied male population being on the muster rolls
and performing guard duty by day and night at the guard
house, and field duty whenever circumstances required, the
public square and houses around it fell into decay and ruins,
while the accession was mostly on the southwest of the
original site. This might have been and probably was
caused by the change in the bed of the river, the destruction
of the agricultural fields and the washing out and leaving
the bed of the river so much where the water was taken out,
that the water could not be brought into the original
ditch, and the inhabitants were forced to make new fields in
the neighborhood of what is now San Pedro street. But
whatever may have at first impelled the people to extend the
town southwesterly, its growth in time past has been and at
present is in that direction. Although the value of real estate
is in a great measure dependent upon the facilities for
supplying it with water, still the comparative value of
different parcels is not at all in accordance with their
proximity to the source of the water supply, but the reverse
is the rule.

Nearly all the land within the city limits in the south and
southwestern part, is devoted to gardens, orchards, vineyards
and agricultural fields. The number of inhabitants is about
ten thousand. There are one grammar and six primary public
schools and six private schools, one of the latter under the
control and taught by the Sisters of Charity is a flourishing
institution for the education of girls. The college of St.
Vincent, of which Father Magill is president, has an able
corps of professors and teachers, and is well conducted and
in a prosperous condition.

The whole number of pupils in the common schools is
510, and in the college and other private schools the number
is 350.

The total value of taxable property within the city, in
the year 1870-71, was estimated at $1,372,601. Since that
time the amounts, and especially that resulting from real estate,
has been materially increased, both by the great area of land
put under cultivation and by the large number of buildings
which have been erected within the past two years. This
augmentation in the amount of property cannot fall much
short and probably exceeds one million of dollars.


Politically, the county is bounded on the north by
Kern, on the northeast and east by San Bernardino, on the east
and southeast by San Diego, and on the west and northwest
by Ventura County, and on the south and southwest by the
ocean. Topographically, it is bounded on the north by a
spur of the Sierra Nevada range of mountains, which
branching from the main chain at the San Bernardino eleva-
tion, runs west to the sea which washes its base for a distance
of twenty-five or thirty miles. Its eastern limit is an open
plain and the mountains of Santiago, which is the north-
western part of another spur of the main range of mountains
that branches off at the head of the San Luis Rey and Santa
Margarita rivers in the county of San Diego, and runs
northwesterly about one hundred miles, when it terminates
abruptly against the Santa Ana river. On the south and
southeast it lies along the sea. The Islands San Clemente,
Santa Catalina and others, containing about eleven hundred
square miles, are also within the county. The county
contains, exclusive of the islands, about four thousand nine
hundred square miles of land, of which one-third is moun-
tainous. The other two-thirds adapted to tillage or pasture,
is mostly a plain extending from the base of the mountains
with a slight inclination to the sea. This plain is about one
hundred miles long, with a breadth varying from ten to forty
miles. On the southeast, where the county joins San Diego
County, the mountain of Santiago approaches the sea-shore.
In that portion of the county bordering upon the ocean, from
the line of San Diego County to the high mountains, over
which the line passes dividing it from Ventura County, there
are but two inconsiderable elevations; one a little west of
San Juan Capistrano, the other near to and in the same
direction from San Pedro.

The Los Angeles, San Gabriel and Santa Ana rivers,
all of which have their outlets in this county, are the principal
water courses. The first rises near the western limit of the
county, and after running about fifty miles in a semi-circle,
enters the ocean at San Pedro. The other two have their
sources in San Bernardino County, and traverse Los Angeles
County in a southwesterly direction.

The sites of three of the old Catholic Missions are in
this county. San Gabriel, founded in 1771, is about twenty-
eight miles from and lies a little east of north from the bay
of San Pedro, and is eight miles northeast from Los Angeles
City. During the first quarter of this century, it was the
richest Mission in California. In 1802, the number of Indian
neophytes was one thousand and fifty-seven. In 1835, the
number of horned cattle was estimated at from seventy-five
to one hundred thousand. The herds were spread over the
country from the valleys and elevated table lands of the San
Bernardino mountains to the sea-shore, a distance of eighty
miles. Of horse kind there was numbered seventeen hundred,
and of sheep thirteen thousand. Its cultivated fields, its
vineyards and orchards and its workshops, were on a corres-
ponding scale. The annual cereal and leguminous products
were about four thousand bushels, although its wheat harvest
alone frequently exceeded that amount.

The Mission of San Fernando, situated about twenty-five
miles west of San Gabriel, founded in 1779, was also
rich in cattle, horses and sheep, and was famed for the
superior quality of the products of its vineyards, whether in
the fruit, fermented or distilled state.

The Mission of San Juan Capistrano, founded 1776,
situated near the sea-shore, about sixty miles southeast from
San Gabriel, was possessed of still greater wealth than San

The buildings at each of these Missions were large and
imposing; but being constructed of a material (adobes)
subject to quick decay when exposed to the action of the
elements, their duration under neglect has been brief.
Subsequent to 1833, when the Missions of California had
reached their greatest affluence, the dissipation of the
property of the Missions in this county was rapid, and in a
few years little or nothing of this vast amount of property
was in existence. The flocks and herds disappeared, the
fields were untilled, the scores of workshops were silent and
deserted, the vineyards and orchards uncared for and aban-
doned, and the imposing structures, as well as the consecrated
edifices which had been reared with so much care and cost
of labor, crumbled to decay and into piles of ruins in a space of
time almost incredible.

San Fernando has dwindled to an unremunerative ranch.
San Gabriel and San Juan are small villages, inhabited by
people of all nations and languages, few or none of the
descendants of those Indians by whose labor these massive
piles were built up, those broad fields tilled, those numerous
herds tended and kept in subjugation, those whose muscles
moved the scores of looms and spinning wheels, those whose
brawny arms wielded the sledge and hammer, those artificers
from whose workshops, hats shoes, shirts and blankets, gold
and silver plated spurs and bridles and embroidered saddles,
flowed in continuous streams to the general storehouse, are
now to be found in either of those once hives of industry.

The population of the county in 1870, was, according to
the United States census, 15,309, and the estimated value of
the real property was $7,737,731, and the personal property
was estimated at $3,819,026, making a total of $11,556,757.
Since the taking of the census and the making of this
estimate, the rate of increase of the population has been
augmented, while the large area of wild land which has since
that time been brought into cultivation, thereby greatly
enhancing its market value, as also the very large amount
which has been invested in improvements throughout the
country part of the county as well as in the cities, towns and
hamlets, has largely increased the amount of the value both
of real and personal property.

There are a number of cities, towns, villages or hamlets
in the county, of which Wilmington and Anaheim are the
chief. The former is the present terminus of the Los Angeles
and San Pedro Railroad, and the chief point of embarcation
and debarcation, both for this county and those adjoining on
the north and east, as well as for northern Arizona.

There is a post-office at Los Angeles city, which is a
money order office, and at Ravena City, San Gabriel,
Wilmington, El Monte, San Jose, Anaheim, San Juan Capistrano,
Gallatin, Los Nietos, Compton, Petroliopolis, Santa
Ana and Spadra.

This Church was organized in 1867, by Rev. A. Parker,
who commenced to labor here under the auspice of the
A. H. M. Society, and for some time held his services in the
Court House. The place of worship now occupied by this
Society, was erected and dedicated in 1868. In October,
1868, the Rev. I. W. Atherton became the successor of Mr.
Parker to the pastorate of this Church, under whose efficient
labors it had a steady growth. The present pastor, responding
to a call from the Church and congregation, entered upon his
labors in November, 1871. The Church membership now
numbers 40. The value of the Church property is about

The first service of this Church ever held in Los Angeles,
was in the year 1854, the Right Rev. W. J. Kip, D. D., then
Missionary Bishop of the Pacific Coast, officiating. On
Christmas day, 1864, the Rev. Elias Birdsall arrived as the
first settled clergyman. Mr. Birdsall remained eighteen months.
During his rectorship a parish was organized, and the present
Church building and property secured. The Church at this
time is under the rectorship of the Rev. J. B. Gray, who took
charge November 20th 1870. There are at present connected
with this Church, 35 families, about 100 individuals, and 40
communionists. The Sunday school numbers 13 teachers
(4 male and 9 female) and 110 scholars.

The young and prosperous town of Gallatin is situated
about ten miles east of Los Angeles, in the center of the
finest agricultural district in the State. The area under
cultivation is about seven miles square, running from the
Rincon of the Paso Bartolo on the north, to the line of the
Cerritos on the south; and from a point opposite the Ten Mile
House on the west bank of the San Gabriel, to the Canada
Verde on the Coyotes. Every forty acres of this tract is
occupied; and in productiveness, generosity of soil and easy
cultivation, cannot be excelled in this or any other State in
the Union.

The settlement of Gallatin was commenced in 1866. The
first settlers in the immediate neighborhood, were Henry
Hammerton, Andrew W. Ryan, J. G. B Haynes, J. H. Burk,
John See, Geo. W. Cole, R. H. Mayes, Samson Cole,
with a numerous family of sons and grand children, Allan
Neighbors, and his brother-in-law Mr. Hutchinson, John
McElrath, and Wm. Carruthers, purchased their present
handsome homesteads about this time. This year the
proprietor gave a deed of one acre of land for a school house,
and forthwith commenced the town of Gallatin. It now presents
a business-like appearance, and has many fine stores with large
stocks of merchandize; hotels, saloons and billiard tables,
wagon and blacksmith shops, boot and shoe manufactories,
doctors' offices and drug stores, and what is still more
pleasing, it boasts of having the finest school edifice in the
county. The citizens of Gallatin are enterprising, intelligent
and hospitable, and have none of the characteristics of a new
and rude community; they are highly moral and well supplied
with those whose function it is to minister to the spiritual
comforts that lead men to prepare the way for another and
better world. The people of Gallatin and its surroundings,
are substantial good citizens; they are punctual, honest, and
industrious, and are welcome visitors at the store or the bank
in Los Angeles. We cannot but predict for Gallatin a
brilliant future.


The town of Anaheim is situated near the center of the
great Los Angeles valley, about two miles north of the Santa
Ana river, and 27 miles in a southerly direction from the
city of Los Angeles, on the direct road to San Diego.

Anaheim was originally a German settlement. The founders,
about 14 years ago, purchased some 1200 acres of land
in a square form; this was divided by streets crossing each
other at rights angles, separating the land into blocks of 40
acres, each block was sub-divided into two homesteads of 20
acres; in the center of the tract, a considerable space reserved
as a town site, was divided into convenient sized building
lots; each vineyard proprietor had one of these lots besides
his vineyard. At the same time, a large ditch was constructed
for bringing the waters of the Santa Ana river, by means
of which, each lot and vineyard could be irrigated at pleasure.
After overcoming the obstacles and discouragements common
to new enterprises, which severely tried the indomitable pluck
and patient endurance characteristic of the German race, this
settlement is now, and has for many years been a splendid
success. About 900 acres are occupied by bearing vines
producing an average of 15 pounds of grapes to the vine,
yielding 1,000 gallons of wine to the acre. Each vineyard lot
has a neat cottage surrounded by its fruit trees and a profusion
of ever blooming flowers, and each block is fringed and fenced
by an evergreen hedge of willow, cottonwood and sycamore
trees, which now serve to protect the vines from the disastrous
effects of occasional strong winds; but were originally
intended to repel the incursions of mustang horses and cattle,
which have disappeared in consequence of the settlement of
the surrounding land--and the repeal of the fence law.

Some four years ago, Don Abel Stearns sold to the Los
Angeles and San Bernardino Land company, about 180,000
acres of land lying contiguous to the Santa Ana river, partly
in San Bernardino, but principally in Los Angeles county;
these latter included not only all the lands surrounding, but
also all the lands lying between Anaheim and the ocean, a
distance of twelve miles, a gently sloping plain of the most
exuberant fertility with an inexhaustible supply of water at
an average depth of six feet, on which, all deep rooted plants,
trees, vines etc., are absolutely independent of rain and
irrigation in every case where the soil has been well cultivated.
--These lands have been sectionized and are now being rapidly
sold, settled and improved by thriving and industrious
people, producing enormous crops of corn, rye and barley, and
also all the fruits of temperate and semi-tropical climates.

The climate of this delightful valley is mild, healthful and
temperate, free from the extremes of heat and cold; frosts are
rare and the warmth of our unclouded sun is tempered by
our delicious and unfailing sea-breeze. Of climates we have
an infinite variety; on the sea coast it is cool and bracing,
and every mile one advances from the sea coast to the interior,
the temperature increases, and the sea-breeze becomes milder,
so that invalids can in every case select the climate suited to
their peculiar disease. Anaheim and also Los Angeles and
the other towns of this valley, are now the resort of health
seekers, and in a few years will be thronged by invalids from
all parts of the world who will cheer and solace their
declining days, enjoying our delicious climate, and living in
this famous valley in the enjoyment of all the choicests gifts
of nature.


Lexington is located in El Monte Township, twelve miles
from Los Angeles city, on the stage road to San Bernardino.
Surrounded by lands of wondrous fertility, yielding not only
corn and small grain, but also all the semi-tropical fruits, it
has a thriving trade. It has at present a postoffice, several
stores, three hotels, livery stable, a smith and wagon shop, a
bacon curing establishment, and other industries. With an
increase of facilities for freight transportation a rapid growth
may be expected.


Wilmington is a small town with a present population of
some two hundred and fifty inhabitants, located on an
Estuary, twenty-one miles from Los Angeles. During the
late war, it sprang into something of importance by being made
military head-quarters for this department and a distributing
point for suppplies. It is now chiefly important as the
terminus of the Los Angeles and San Pedro Railroad, and a
shipping point for Los Angeles city and back country. Located
some four miles from steamer anchorage, it is approachable
only by a narrow and winding channel, necessitating lighterage
of all freights, and thus imposing a heavy tax upon
trade and commerce. An appropriation has been obtained
from the General Government, and the experiment of
constructing as breakwater near the mouth of the Estuary with
the view of confining the waters and deepening the channel,
thus enabling vessels to reach the wharf at the railway
terminus, is now progressing. Should the experiment fulfil the
expectation of the projectors, the town will increase in
population and assume additional importance.


Compton is a flourishing settlement on the line of the Los
Angeles and San Pedro Railroad, about nine miles from Los
Angeles city. The settlement was originally established by
Mr. G. D. Compton, an ex-Methodist minister, and the land
has been disposed of principally to Methodist families. It
extends over an area of some six or seven miles square, and
contains about four hundred inhabitants, all told. Its
public buildings are of course limited; nevertheless, the
Methodist Episcopalians have a fine frame church edifice,
32x48, capable of comfortably seating 200 persons. The average
congregation numbers about 100. The Rev. A. Bland officiates.
A new school house has been built, measuring 32x40
feet, two stories high, and will accommodate one hundred
scholars, and is adapted for a two grade school. A number
of artesian wells have been sunk near the Railroad depot,
ranging from 60 to 80 feet in depth, and from which fine
streams of good water are steadily flowing. The settlement,
as a general thing, is progressing favorably.
