Covina Mesothelioma


Covina, is located in Southern California, in Los Angeles County.  It is in the San Gabriel Valley.  According to the 2022, U.S. Census Bureau, the estimated population is 49,489.  Covina is 25 miles from Los Angeles, 35 miles from Long Beach, 38 miles from Santa Monica and  30 miles from Santa Ana, California.  Covina was incorporated as a city on August 14, 1901.



The Indigenous residents of the area were the Tongva Native Americans.  The Tongva People inhabited approximately a 4000 mile territory in the Greater Los Angeles area. Wenlinga was a Tongva village near Covina and San Dimas.  The lands in the nearby Puente Hills Preserve were once known as Awing-na, and was the major homeland of the Tongva Indians.

In 1771, The Spanish priests founded the San Gabriel Arcangel Mission in the Los Angeles area.  The priests referred to the Native Americans as the Gabrielino Indians.  They have also been referred to as the Gabrielino-Tongva Tribe.  Today, the Indians prefer to be called by their original Tongva name rather than the objectionable Gabrielino name given by the Spaniards.

Covina sits on part of the old Rancho La Puente.  On March 9 1842,  the Mexican Governor Juan Bautista Alvarado awarded a land grant to John Rowland which was named Rancho La Puente.  On July 22, 1845, Governor Pio Pico granted co-ownership of Rancho La Puente to Rowland’s business partner William Workman and increased the acreage. In 1868, Roland and Workman equally divided Rancho La Puente Rancho between them. Rancho La Puente was eventually sold to different parties.  In 1882, Joseph Swift Phillips purchased 2000 acres of Rancho La Puente and he subsequently founded the town of Covina.

In 1883, Phillips gained a controlling interest in the Azusa Water Development and Irrigating Company and built a 7 mile cement ditch to bring water from the San Gabriel River to his land  In 1884, Phillips hired Frederick Eaton an engineer to survey and divide his land into 10 -1-acre lots for sale.  Eaton named the new town Covina.

In the late 1800s, Covina was known for ranching and farming.  In the early 1900s, Covina’s economy prospered with orange and grapefruit groves. In 1895, the Southern Pacific Railroad constructed a line to Covina.  Also, in 1895, the Covina Citrus Association was incorporated and the Houser Bothers Packing House was built near the new Southern Pacific rail line.  The town blossomed with the Citrus Industry and the Railroad.

Seeking more control the residents petitioned the Los Angeles County Board of Supervisors to incorporate their town. On August 14, 1901, Covina was incorporated as a city. At the time of incorporation the city of Covina was only one mile square.  Today, Covina is 7.05 square miles, and is still considered a small city in California.

Covina is part of the greater Los Angeles area and like most of Southern California its agricultural fields have given way to residential housing.  It has a diverse population and a large Latino community. Covina is centrally located with access to Interstate Routes 10, 210,and 605, as well as access to State Route 57.
