El Pueblo de Los Angeles Historical Monument


When I was in LA, I noticed a cool park. I found it is was El Pueblo de Los Angeles and it is a historic district located in the oldest section on LA. It was founded in 1781 and has been under three flags (Spain, Mexico and U.S.) The 44 -park area was designated a state historic monument in 1953 and listed on the National Register of Historic Places in 1972:









King Carlos III of Spain 1759-1788
Felipe De Neve Spanish Governor of California 1775-1782

El Pueblo de Los Angeles is a wonderful place and a must visit when you are in the City of Angeles.

  1. I was in LA recently and I've been there before but I never knew about this park. I will have to check it out next time I'm in the area.

  16. Patrick, Historic areas are interesting. It's really neat to walk where noted people of history stepped. The name Carlos got me to thinking, some family members on my dad's side had this as a first name. I wonder if there's some Spain/Mexican blood ties in my family roots. I know my maternal great grandfather has some Spaniard blood, but I don't know how much. I wish I could find someone in the family who has documented our legacy to the land which they came from. That would be really cool to know. Anywho, thanks for sharing such wonderful photos and for linking up today. Have a fototastic week!
