The City of South El Monte is a vibrant and thriving community, located in the heart of the San Gabriel Valley, just minutes from downtown Los Angeles. In just five decades, South El Monte has matured into a viable commercial and industrial base, with over 2,400 businesses because of its diverse land-use pattern and excellent freeway accessibility to the 10, 60, and 605 freeways reaching to all points throughout Southern California. These factors contribute to the desirability of South El Monte as a good location for business development. South El Monte has lived up to its motto “Growing Our Future,” in the last several years; the city has significantly flourished with a spur of community developments, that include additional quality housing, economic development, infrastructure improvements, and municipal rehabilitation programs. Some of the most recent developments the South El Monte is proud of include: Plaza del Sol Neighborhood Shopping Center on Durfee Avenue houses retailers such as Marshalls, CVS, Subway, Superior Grocers, Panda Express, and other known regional retailers; the construction of 30 detached two-story condominiums known as the “South El Monte Villas,” where 26 homes were made affordable

through the city’s First Time Home Buyer Program; New Arco gas station with an AM/PM convenience store located on the corner of Rush Avenue and Rosemead Boulevard; revitalizing a once blighted


area; Senior Mixed Housing project that includes 17,000 square feet of retail space on the first floor and the remaining floors serving as senior housing apartment units. Fifty–six out of 72 units were designated as affordable housing for low-tomoderate income residents; and infrastructure enhancements such as the repaving of major streets, beautification projects throughout the city, and state-of-the-art renovations at Mary Van Dyke Park. These undertakings have revitalized South El Monte, increased property values and generated more than $4 million in sales-tax revenue that has been invested back into the community. South El Monte

works diligently to meet its current needs and is continuously searching for other improvement opportunities; particularly in retail and commercial development.

Community members are the heart of South El Monte and for that reason the city is always striving to improve the quality of life and provide exceptional services. South El Monte offers various community services programs for residents of all ages, such as recreational facilities, youth and senior services, and city-wide special events. South El Monte in partnership with community members will continue to prevail and grow its future.

EL MONTE’S HERITAGE The “island” of El Monte, a four-by seven-mile tract of rich, low-lying land east of Los Angeles, between the San Gabriel and Rio Hondo rivers, has always offered respite and replenishment to native dwellers and travelers. In centuries past, the Gabrielino, or Tongva Indians, used this area as they traversed the land harvesting foods and hunting game. Blessed with deep, rich, alluvial topsoil, the area was crossed by small streams and, in those early days, was covered by stands of slender willows, alders and cattails, interspersed with expansive meadows, wild grapevines and succulent watercress. Between the 1770s and 1830s, missionaries and Spanish soldiers stopped here and named the area “El Monte,” which referred not to the mountain as most assume, but to that era’s definition: “meadow or marsh” or “the wooded place.”

Sharing El Monte’s Heritage

During the land-grant/rancho era of the 1830s-40s, the area continued to serve as a natural resting place for weary travelers, including a small party of Americans led by Jedediah Smith, a famed mountain man and explorer. Among his party in 1826 was Harrison Rogers, whose diary entry about their stay referred to the rest and rehabilitation offered by “Camp Monte” or “Monte Camp.”

Other pioneers led by Captain Johnson of Lexington, Kentucky, arrived in the following year. A brief survey of the gold fields to the north convinced Captain Johnson that El Monte’s agricultural promise offered a more realistic key to the future of his group. A natural leader, he became an important part of the community in the 1850s with permanent residents consisting of no more than a dozen families. He proposed naming their village “Lexington” in honor of his birthplace and as a tribute to the importance of that name in U.S. Revolutionary War history. Even though residents agreed, the original name of El Monte, Monte Camp or the Monte persisted. When the State Legislature organized California into smaller defined governmental units called townships, they named this area El Monte Township, with the Village of Lexington as its government seat. Two years later, the town’s name reverted to the original: El Monte. Farmers here enjoyed increasing success, despite occasional floods from its rivers and other periods of severe drought. The community grew steadily with card parlors and dance halls, robberies and murders. Vigilantes, particularly the infamous “Monte Boys,” hastened the hanging of wrongdoers.

El Monte’s first permanent residents arrived in 1849-50, a time when thousands of prospectors and immigrant pioneers came to California seeking gold. Few found wealth in the gold, but some found the riches of a fertile land and built homes. Originally setting off in search of gold, the Thompson family crossed the San Gabriel River to reach El Monte in 1851 after a 14-month journey from Iowa that had left them physically and emotionally depleted and living with a daily concern for the barest necessities of life. With the hardships they had endured crossing mountains and deserts and fending off the attacks by hostile Apaches, their aims changed and they wanted only to settle at the first place offering adequate fresh water and good soil for farming.

Politically divided by the Civil War, the community had Confederate sympathies, even though California was a Union state. During these early years, El Monte’s successful agrarian economy was based on such products as wool, honey, grain, fruit, castor oil, hops, cotton and El Monte bacon. Early business enterprises included the Willow Grove Inn on the Butterfield Stage route between Riverside and Los Angeles. This early “motel” was established, owned and operated by members of the Thompson family. Improved transportation became available in 1873, when Southern Pacific built the first railroad through town. Other important milestones included publication of the weekly newspaper strictly for EI Monte in 1876 and the opening of the drug store in 1892.

Agriculture remained at the core of El Monte’s economy in the early 20th century, though fruit orchards, walnut groves, truck farms, hay and vegetable fields and a growing dairy industry replaced most of the earlier field crops. Arden Farms was one of the largest dairies in the area. Bodger Seed, Ltd. leased large tracts of land on the southern part of the “island” to grow plots of flowering plants for seed production. Laid out in precise geometric patterns, these fields brought visitors from throughout San Gabriel Valley during the blooming season and led to the area being called Las Flores. El Monte Union High School District was organized in 1901, to include students from portions of the present communities of Bassett, Whittier, Montebello, Rosemead, Temple City, Arcadia, Monrovia and El Monte. During its first year of operation, 12-15 students attended classes in a single room upstairs in the old Lexington Avenue Grammar School. By 1908 enrollment had grown to 65 students, who were housed in a separate high school campus. Main Street was first graded and paved in 1906. In 1907, Pacific Electric intercity railroad service was extended to El Monte. The line’s old “Red Cars” remained an important part of transportation for the next 45 years. Until incorporation of El Monte in 1912, volunteer fire and police departments served the area. The 1910 revolution in Mexico saw a large increase of Mexican immigration into the southwestern United States. Most of these immigrants found jobs as farm workers, many into the lush farmlands of EI Monte. Despite experiencing hardships and discrimination in housing, education, jobs and public service, these young men enlisted in the armed forces of WWI, WWII, Korea and Vietnam. The American Indians and Japanese Americans also served and worked in support of their country.

The “Roaring ‘20s” had a slightly different connotation in El Monte than elsewhere in the country, with the arrival of Gay’s Lion Farm. Two European-born former circus stars, Mr. and Mrs. Charles Gay, operated this tourist attraction, which has been called “the Disneyland of the 1920s and 1930s.” The Gays raised wild animals for use in the burgeoning motion picture industry, with the operation housing over 200 African lions. The compound had individual cages for adult lions, a larger “nursery” cage for cubs and a very large, centrally located arena cage in which Gay trained the lions to perform acts for spectators. Many of the lions starred in films during the 1920s and 1930s, including the “Tarzan” films starring Elmo Lincoln and Johnny Weismuller. The MGM lion logo was made with “Jackie,” one of the Gays’ most famous stars. Athletic teams from EI Monte High School chose “The Lions” as their team name, and Gay periodically designated one of the young, active male lions as the school’s official mascot to make an appearance at certain home football games and with a roar, encouraged cheering of the hometown crowds. World War II rationing of meat and gasoline led to closing the lion farm, with the lions “loaned” to public zoos. Once the war ended, however, Charles Gay’s failing health made it impossible for him to resume the business, and today the only remnant of the farm is a magnificent statue of Jackie the Lion, which was relocated to the present EI Monte High School campus. This statue has been designated as an official historical monument, with the farm’s history inscribed on a bronze plaque at its base. A new lion statue resides at the intersections of Peck Road and Valley Boulevard, the original site and commemorating the history of Gay’s Lion Farm. In the 1930s, EI Monte was a small community with a Mexican population of about 20 percent, a Japanese population of five percent and an Anglo population of 75 percent. However, the

Depression of the ‘30s brought drastic changes to EI Monte, as it did to many other communities. Farm profits plummeted, leading some landowners to sublet small farm tracts to Japanese tenants, who raised such cash crops as berries, melons and vegetables. Other areas of EI Monte, particularly large groves and orchards, were subdivided into homesites of one acre or less, transforming El Monte to a bedroom community from which residents commuted elsewhere.

dwindled. Population exploded in the 1940s and early 1950s – illustrated by high school enrollment, which soared from 1,500 students in 1943 to 3,700 in 1948. Five different beginning/ ending times had to be instituted to accommodate all the students and class schedules. During its first 48 years, El Monte Union High School housed its entire student population in one school, but from 1949 to the present, four additional schools were built.

During these times, most Mexican immigrants worked as farm hands and lived in one of three immigrant camps (Hicks, Las Flores or Medina Court), and the Japanese tenant farmer lived on the farm itself. There was minimal racial tension between these two immigrant groups, as they had common goals and both suffered discriminatory practices from the majority population. For example, elementary education was segregated, with Mexican and Japanese students attending different grade schools (K-5) than their Anglo counterpart. However, there were some tense situations such as what occurred in the famous “El Monte Berry Strike” of 1933, which by the end had mixed results for all sides.

Sharing El Monte’s Heritage

The Long Beach earthquake in March 1933 severely damaged the high school, leaving 40 percent of the classrooms unsafe for use. Makeshift wood and canvas bungalows served as temporary classrooms, until a new school was built. The new school, which provided improved facilities for the growing enrollment, opened in 1939, and still stands today on Tyler Avenue below Mildred Street as EI Monte High School. The graceful new EI Monte Community and Civic Center, designed in the mission architectural style, opened in June 1936 next to the high school on land donated by Bodger Seed, Ltd., with several days of celebration that initiated the Pioneer Days observance held annually for the next 10 years (with a brief hiatus during WWII). Citizens enjoyed old-fashioned games and events, dressing in western frontier style and taking part in a pioneer pageant held in the auditorium to depict the “Thompson Party” and “Captain Johnson.” Because these annual “bashes” tended to encourage over-imbibing and attracted a rowdy element from surrounding communities, they were discontinued. El Monte had been a small, prosperous farm town, but the advent of WWII brought dramatic changes, as small aircraft factories sprang up on the west side of town, young men joined the military and the number of farms and dairies

From a population of about 10,000 in 1940, the population now numbers approximately 116,000. In place of the sleepy little town of orchards, flower fields and farms and dairies, is an urban community of homes, schools and parks supported by an expanding industrial and commercial base. Located approximately 12 miles east of downtown Los Angeles, El Monte is the hub of the San Gabriel Valley, where two major freeways – Interstates 605 and 10 – intersect. Other transportation alternatives are offered by a MetroLink train station, MTA bus terminal and El Monte Airport, a countyoperated general aviation facility. The 10th largest city (out of 88) in Los Angeles County, the land use within its 10-squaremile area is 58 percent residential, 11 percent retail, 10 percent industrial, seven percent office/commercial and 14 percent other. El Monte is a very ethnically diverse community, with the year 2000 demographics reflecting an increase in the Asian population up to an all-time high of 18 percent, the Hispanic population remaining steady at 75 percent and Caucasians decreasing to seven percent. El Monte is home to Longo Toyota, the largest single auto dealership in the world, with other successful auto dealerships situated nearby. Other major retail businesses include Home Depot and Sam’s Club. Major industries include Vons Distribution Warehouse and Wells Fargo Operations Center. In recent times, new immigrants from Taiwan, China, Vietnam, Indochina, the Philippines, Central and South America have moved into El Monte, providing an international flavor and strong workforce. These citizens have a positive work ethic and get along well with each other. City commissions include formal ties with Taiwan, China, Mexico and France. Members of all ethnic groups serve within these commissions, bringing together people from countries across the world. Despite all these changes, El Monte continues to offer a home for those who seek to put down roots, seek new opportunities and bring fresh ideas and energy to the area.

City of South El Monte CITY AT A GLANCE

South El Monte once served as a watering hole and campsite for Shoshone Indians and explorers in the area. Modern history began with the arrival of the first settlers, the Thompson Party, during the California Gold Rush. The Thompson family founded El Monte Township in the late 1860s.

redevelopment projects and a one-stop service bringing in state and federal agencies to make it easy for businesses to locate in the city. These are all under South El Monte’s “public and private partnerships” vision. The city also provides support to business in the area of workforce development.

The area went through its agricultural period and began its suburban growth early in the 20th century. The city was incorporated in 1958. At the time of the split with El Monte, South El Monte contained most of the area’s industrial businesses. Today, light manufacturing remains the city’s economic base.

South El Monte offers a good blend of older and younger residents working with the same dedication and community spirit that the city was founded upon. Both the residents and business community are working together to make the community a better place to live and work. In just five decades, the city of South El Monte has matured into a viable commercial and industrial base, with over 2,400 businesses within 3.25 square miles.

As the famous saying goes, “There’s no place like home." The city of South El Monte understands that it is more than a city to its 22,500 residents; it’s their home. For that reason, the city of South El Monte is committed to developing quality housing, promoting homeownership and revitalizing neighborhoods, and has provided programs such as Affordable Housing, First Time Home Buyer and Home Rehabilitation Loans to fulfill that objective. Throughout the city there are neighborhoods that have been revamped thanks to the development of new housing.
