On september 4th in the year 1781 eleven families of Pobladores, 44 persons including children, arrived at this place from the Gulf of California to establish a Pueblo which was to become the City of Los Angeles.
This colonisation, ordered by King Carlos III. of Spain, was carried out under the direction of Governor Felipe de Neve.
After years of decay Christine Sterling, the mother of Olvera Street fell in love with an adobe building of this historic village and began to develop this seedy area into a Mexican-style tourist attraction.
El Paseo de Los Angeles historic monument was established on April 19th, 1930 for tourism and education.
