East Los Angeles CA Beginnings
The development of East Los Angeles homes began with the arrival of the Southern Pacific Railroad in 1875 and streetcars that took passengers to downtown Los Angeles. Areas such as Mount Washington were among the wealthiest in Southern California. Beginning in the 1930s, Anglo families were replaced by others of Mexican descent who were attracted to the low-priced homes in East Los Angeles.
By the 1950s, nearly all the residents were Latinos who developed a Mexican culture particular to Southern California. In the following decades, many of these families moved to other areas while recent immigrants took their places. In many areas, it is not uncommon to see vegetables growing and chickens in the yard.
Pride in ethnic heritage and a feeling of familiarity and connection with old world culture and traditions make East Los Angeles property listings attractive to many home buyers.
