Benjamin “Don Benito” Wilson, a wealthy developer and landowner of 40,000 acres, donated 300 acres of his property which became the city of Alhambra. In 1870, Wilson’s son-in-law De Barth Shorb subdivided the land into lots. Mr. Wilson named the city after the book “Tales of the Alhambra” by Washington Irving. In the 1800s, Alhambra’s economy was agricultural, which included vineyards and citrus groves.
In the early 20th century many midwestern families came to California looking for a better life. Today, Alhambra is comprised of many diverse cultural groups. From its Native American, Spanish and Mexican origins, Alhambra has welcomed large ethnic groups including, Italians in the 1950s, Mexicans in the 1960s and in the 1970s and 80s, Chinese and East Asian immigrants.
