Alhambra is a city in western San Gabriel Valley of Los Angeles County, situated around 8 miles from Downtown Los Angeles.
The city was incorporated in 1903, and is home to approximately 83,000 people. Alhambra is named after Washington Irving's book Tales of the Alhambra, which who wrote after his visit in the Alhambra palace in Granada, Spain. The city of Alhambra was founded as a suburb of Los Angeles, and remained an incorporated area during the mid-19th century. Several years before the city's incorporation in 1903, prominent families in the area invested in their daughter's Catholic education established the Ramona Convent Secondary School. The school, which was built in 1890 on a hillside property donated by the prominent James de Barth Shorb family, was the first school in Alhambra and it still operates today. Other historic buildings include the Alhambra High School, established in 1898, and the Alhambra Fire Department, founded in 1906. Alhambra was originally promoted as a city of homes and the city still boasts beautiful historic homes of craftsman, bungalow, Spanish Mediterranean, Spanish colonial and beaux-arts styles. Some of the residential areas have even been designated historic neighborhoods by the City of Alhambra, such as the Bean Tract, the Midwich Tract, the Airport Tract and the Emery Park area. In addition to a large number of old homes, you'll find an influx of condominiums, rental apartments and mixed-use residential/commercial buildings, especially in Downtown Alhambra. The downtown area is perhaps the most interesting part of Alhambra, as it has been a center of commerce since 1895. In the 1950s, Downtown Alhambra was revitalized with upscale features and was the place to be in San Gabriel Valley. Unfortunately, many old buildings have been torn down since, but the revival of Main Street has led to the development of many new dining places and various retail and entertainment establishments. There are numerous opportunities for cultural enrichment and recreation in Alhambra, ranging from parks to a vibrant dining and retail scene and numerous historic attractions. For a little bit of ethnic flavor, head to Valley Boulevard where you'll find a large number of Chinese restaurants, supermarkets, shops, banks and service businesses. If you're looking to shop, check out the Alhambra Place Shopping Center, and for a bit of cultural entertainment, visit the Garfield Theatre.
