The Early Days Of Rosemead:
Before the Spanish colonized the area of Rosemead, CA, it was occupied by Native American people which the Spanish called Gabrielenos, but had an earlier name of Kizh. During the Spanish Colonial era, the area that Rosemead now occupies was dedicated to a Roman Catholic mission called the San Gabriel Mission, which was established in 1771.
The San Gabriel Mission held the land for many years. In 1833, the Mexican government passed the Secularization Act, which resulted in the redistribution of the mission’s land to private citizens, on the condition that they built a house and grazed cattle on the land.
In 1848, following the Mexican-American war, the land now known as California was handed over to the United States of America, and Americans began to move to the area. The land remained a sparsely populated, rural area made up of ranches and farms until it was officially named Rosemead City in 1959.
