Rowland Heights Mesothelioma


Rowland Heights, is located in Southern California, in Los Angeles County.  Rowland Heights is in the San Gabriel Valley.  According to the 2020, U.S. Census Bureau, Rowland Hieghts’ population is 48,231.  Rowland Heights is 23 miles from Los Angeles, 34 miles from Long Beach, and  20 miles from Santa Ana, California.  Rowland Heights is an unincorporated area in Los Angeles County and is a Census Designated Place (CDP).  Rowland Heights is 13.082 total square miles and is the largest CDP in Los Angeles County by area. It also lies on the Orange County, California border.



The Indigenous residents of the area were the Chumash, Tataviam and Tongva People.  The Indigenous People inhabited approximately a 4000 mile territory in the Greater Los Angeles area.  In 1771, The Spanish priests founded the San Gabriel Arcangel Mission in the Los Angeles area.  The priests referred to the Native Americans in the area as the Gabrielino (or Gabrieleno) Indians, due to their proximity to the San Gabriel Arcangel Mission.  The local Tongva have also been referred to as the Gabrielino-Tongva Tribe. 

Today, the local Native Americans prefer to be called by their original Tongva name rather than the objectionable Gabrielino name given to them by the Spaniards.  Under Spain’s rule in the early 1800s, Rancho La Puente was an outpost of the Mission San Gabriel Arcangel.

Rowland Heights sits on part of the old Rancho La Puente.  On March 9 1842, the Mexican Governor Juan Bautista Alvarado awarded an 18,000-acre land grant to John Rowland which was named Rancho La Puente.  On July 22, 1845, the Mexican Governor Pio Pico granted co-ownership of Rancho La Puente to Rowland’s business partner William Workman and increased the acreage to about 49,000-acres.

In 1868, Roland and Workman apportioned Rancho La Puente between them. Rowland took the northern and eastern sections of Rancho La Puente.  Rancho La Puente was eventually sold to different parties but the Rowland Heights area is named after John Rowland.  The John A. Rowland house, is the oldest brick house in Southern California and is preserved in the City of Industry.

In the late 1840s, Rowland Heights’ population grew with the California Gold Rush and flourished again when the railroad came into the area in the 1870s.  In the mid-1800s, Rowland Heights was a successful agricultural area and known for ranching and farming.  In the 1900s, Rowland Heights’s economy was primarily agricultural and prospered with an abundance of citrus, walnut and avocado crops.

Rowland Heights’ population boomed after World War II.  There was an influx of numerous workers that came to the Los Angeles area to support the war effort.  In the 1950s, the Rowland and Walnut Water District was formed and ultimately successfully brought water from the Colorado River to the Rowland Heights’ area. In 1964, with the construction of California State Route 60, Rowland Heights built residential housing and developed commercial industry which attracted more people to the area.

In the 1970s, Asian immigrants flocked to the area.  Rowland Heights is one of the San Gabriel Valley’s many communities that encompass a plurality of Chinese-American residents. Many Rowland Heights residents are from Taiwan, China and South Korea.  In the 1980s, Rowland Heights was nicknamed “Little Taipei” due to the large influx of Chinese from Taiwan.  However, Latinos have also maintained an enduring presence in the Rowland Heights area.

Today, Rowland Heights is a suburban community and part of the greater Los Angeles Metropolitan Area.  It has a robust, impressive and diverse population. Rowland Heights residents include, 60.5% Asian, 30.0% Latino, and 12.6% white. The Puente Hills Preserve is nearby which provides access to many parks and trails.
