Arts & Culture

The rich history of the City of San Gabriel dates back to 1771 with the founding of the Mission San Gabriel Archangel, a California State historical landmark, which established San Gabriel as the birthplace of the Los Angeles region.

The Mission San Gabriel Arcangel, "Pride of the California Missions", founded by Father Junipero Serra in 1771 was the fourth of 21 California missions. It has long been a center for culture and art. As the original and oldest settlement north of San Diego and south of San Luis Obispo, it is from San Gabriel that the City of Los Angeles and the greater metropolitan area were established.
