City Information: Gardena
Based on archaeological findings, Tongva Indians hunted and fished in the area of today's Gardena. The Tongva Indians also known as Gabrielino Indians are probably descendants of those who crossed from Asia to North America around 10,000 years ago.
In 1784, three years after the foundation of Los Angeles, Juan Jose Dominguez (17361809), a Spanish soldier who arrived in San Diego, California in 1769 with Fernando Rivera y Moncada, in recognition of his military service, received the roughly 43,000-acre (170 km2) Spanish land grant, the Rancho San Pedro. Part of this land contained what became known as Gardena Valley.After the American Civil War veterans bought parts of the land, soon ranchers and farmers followed suit.Union Army Major General William Starke Rosecrans in 1869 bought 16,000 acres (65 km2). The "Rosecrans Rancho," was bordered by what later was Florence Avenue on the north, Redondo Beach Boulevard on the south, Central Avenue on the east, and Arlington Avenue on the west.
The Rosecrans property was sub divided and sold in the early 1870s. One of those became the 650-acre (2.6 km2) Amestoy Ranch. Gardena proper began in 1887 when the Pomeroy & Harrison real estate developers subdivided the ranch, and-anticipating that the coming of the Los Angeles and Redondo Railway. Civil War veteran Spencer Roane Thorpe is credited with starting the first settlement in Gardena in 1887.Railroads put Gardena on the map following a real estate boom in the Los Angeles area in the 1880s. Some believe the city was named for its reputation for being the only "green spot" in the dry season between Los Angeles and the sea. Because of its acres of berries, the city was dubbed "Berryland".The Strawberry Day Festival and Parade was held each May annually.The berry industry suffered at the time of World War I as other crops were supported by the war economy.Japanese Americans settled in Gardena throughout its history.
The only way Gardena could protect itself from a heavy county tax imposed on a planned project at a park site was to incorporate.The City of Gardena became incorporated on September 11, 1930.
The 2010 United States Censusreported that Gardena had a population of 58,829. The city operates the Gardena Municipal Bus Lines. Gardena is served by the Los Angeles Unified School District. The area is within Board District 7.
