Rosemead Mesothelioma


Rosemead, is located in California’s San Gabriel Valley, in Los Angeles County.  According to the U.S. Census, Rosemead’s 2022, estimated population was 49,791.  Rosemead is 11 miles from Los Angeles, 26 miles from Anaheim, 27.9 miles from Long Beach, and 30 miles from Torrance, California.  Rosemead was incorporated as a city on August 4, 1959.



The Indigenous residents in Southern California, including Los Angeles County were the Tongva (also known as the Kizh) Native Americans.  When the Spaniards arrived they called the Tongva, the Gabrieleno (Gabrielino) because of their close proximity to the San Gabriel Arcangel Mission.  The Tongva people 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 Native population was decimated by European disease and armed conflict with the Spanish and later the Americans.

In 1771, the Spanish founded the first San Gabriel Arcangel Mission in the area that is now known as Whittier Narrows on the border between Montebello and Rosemead. In 1775, the first San Gabriel Arcangel Mission moved to avoid floods that ruined their crops, to its present location in San Gabriel.

Rosemead sits on part of Rancho Potrero Grande, a 4,432-acre Mexican land grant awarded by Governor Pio Pico to Manuel Antonio in 1845.  Manuel Antonio, was a Native American and former mayordomo or superintendent at the Mission San Gabriel Arcangel.  Rancho Potrero Grande was eventually sold and transferred to other entities.

In the mid-1850s, early settlers in the area were John and Harriet Guess and Frank Forst and Leonard John “L.J.” Rose (1827-1899).  Leonard Rose and his wife Amanda raised horses and established an 880 acre ranch which they named Rose’s Meadow.  “Rosemead” – originally “Rosemeade” – was coined in 1889 by Leonard Rose in honor of his ranch. In 1905, Henry Huntington purchased Leonard Rose’s ranch and subdivided it making it the Rosemead tract.    

Rosemead was a rural community with small truck farms and rabbit and chicken farms.  Small truck farmers were small-acreage family farmers who grew a variety of vegetables and fruits that were delivered by small trucks and horse-drawn wagons. The early settlers also raised vegetables, fruits and grain.  The Southern Pacific Railroad arrived in 1876, which led to a population expansion and new business development in Rosemead.

 Rosemead is situated in the San Gabriel Valley.  The San Gabriel Valley has the largest concentration of Asian-American Communities in the United States.  Although, Rosemead has a diverse population of White, Mexican, Japanese, Vietnam, Chinese and other ethnic groups, the 2022 census indicated that Rosemead’s Asian population is 63.4%.  It also has a large Latino population with 30.8%.  Rosemead and its surrounding cities in the San Gabriel Valley represent an ever growing Asian population in Los Angeles County. 

Rosemead is a tranquil suburban community with the amenities of a large city.  It has restaurants, shopping, theater and several historic landmarks. Rosemead also provides access to the nearby Whittier Narrows Recreation Area for outdoor activities.
