Montebello, is located in Southern California, in Los Angeles County.  According to the U.S. Census, Montebello’s 2022, estimated population was 60,569.  Montebello is 10 miles from Los Angeles proper, 20 miles from Anaheim, 25 miles from Long Beach, and 28 miles from Torrance, California.  Montebello was incorporated as a city on October 16, 1920.



The Indigenous residents of the area were the Tongva Native Americans.  They have also been referred to as the Gabrielino-Tongva Tribe.  The Tongva People inhabited the Greater Los Angeles area, including the islands of Santa Catalina, San Nicolas, San Clemente and Santa Barbara. The Gabrielino-Tongva Indians were forced to work on the Franciscan Mission’s orchards, vineyards and herds. The Native population was decimated by disease and conflict.

Montebello sits on parts of three Mexican Land Grants, Rancho San Antonio, Rancho La Merced and Rancho Paso de Bartolo. In 1899, the town was plotted on Harris Newmark and Kasper Cohn’s 1200 acres.  They hired William Mulholland to develop a water system.  Accordingly, the Montebello Land and Water Company was incorporated in 1900.  The town was originally named Newmark but its name was changed to Montebello which means “Beautiful Hills” in Italian.

Early in the 19th century Montebello’s economy was agriculturally based.  It was renowned for its vast production of flowers, vegetables, berries and fruit.  However, the fruits and flowers were surpassed by the discovery of oil.  In 1917, the Standard Oil Company discovered oil which altered the agricultural landscape of Montebello.  By 1920, Montebello was producing one eighth of California’s crude oil. 

Montebello is a suburban community that is part of the greater Los Angeles metropolitan area. It is home to the oldest Armenian Community in Los Angeles.  It was well known for its Japanese-American farming community, who were displaced and interred during World War II.  Many Japanese Americans eventually returned to Montebello.

Montebello is one of about 28 cities that comprise the Gateway Cities.  These cities serve as the epicenter of agriculture, commerce, housing, manufacturing, shipping, light industry and freeway construction.  These cities are located between the southeast section of the city of Los Angeles, to the southern section of the San Gabriel Valley and the Orange county border.  Montebello is a member of the Gateway Cities Council of Governments, which is the coordinating body of the Southeast LA region.
