Why do people come to La Puente? For many, it’s the experience of the suburban life. The city’s municipal government proudly notes that commercial and industrial land use is very low in comparison with the number of homes and apartments supported in the community.
Located about 20 miles east of downtown Los Angeles, the city has about 41,200 residents with Latinos representing the largest population in this bedroom community. As of 2009, the estimated median household income of La Puente was about $49,000, and the estimated median house or condo value was about $330,000.
Taking its name from the Spanish word for “bridge” (not far away, a bridge was built over San Jose Creek by early settlers), La Puente has two “bridges” today—the nearby 10 San Bernardino and 60 Pomona freeways—that enable residents to have easy access to surrounding communities in the valley.
Students are served by schools in both the Bassett Unified and Hacienda-La Puente school districts; the city is also home to football powerhouse Bishop Amat Memorial High School. Two libraries and a health center are also located in the community to assist residents with various needs. La Puente homes for sale.
