History

The desert region of California that today corresponds roughly to Los Angeles was already inhabited between 5,000 and 6,000 years BC by the Indian populations of Tongva (also called Gabrieleños) and Chumash. It should be remembered that in California were found the oldest human remains in the Americas (dated between 10,000 and 13,000 BC) and is therefore verosibile assume that man has set foot in these areas well before the Tongva.

Given its geographical position, in the extreme west of the American continent, the Europeans set foot in these areas only in 1542, by the Spanish explorer Juan Cabrillo diello who explored the area almost entirely. In about two centuries the entire California fell under Spanish dominance but only in 1769 the then Governor Gaspar de Portola organized an expedition, together with the Franciscan Junipero Serra and Juan Crespi, with the aim of colonizing the current Los Angeles area. The first buildings were then built by the Franciscan missions. In 1771 Brother Crespi noticed an area particularly suited to the creation of a new mission but Brother Serra was faster and he founded a near Whittier Narrows.
