EL MONTE, CALIFORNIA OVERVIEW

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. Their borders were north up to the Santa Susanna Mountains, south to Aliso Creek, east to the San Bernardino Mountains and west to the Pacific Ocean, and also included the Channel Islands.
In 1771, Father Junipero Serra founded the fourth Mission in California, the San Gabriel Archangel Mission in the Los Angeles area. Father Junipero Serra referred to the Native Americans as the Gabrielino Indians. They have also been referred to as the Gabrielino-Tongva Tribe. The San Gabriel Mission exploited Indian labor and became wealthy, with orchards, vineyards and herds.
El Monte is located along the San Gabriel River. In the 1770s, Spanish explorers named the area “Monte” which translates to meadow or the wooded place. In the 1800s, the town was mainly agricultural, with fruit orchards, walnut orchards, farms, flowers/seeds and dairies.
In 1852, the first public school was established in El Monte. In 1849, the wagon train had a station there. In 1873, Southern Pacific Railroad established a depot in El Monte.
