Alhambra

You could say that the “h” in Alhambra stands for an important word close to the community’s heart: “history.”

Located in the western end of the San Gabriel Valley, this city with a population of 83,000 is steeped in history. Many of its homes, in fact, have important historical significance: Drive down any of the city streets and you’re likely to spot residences built years ago in popular styles, including Craftsman and bungalow, Arts & Crafts, Italian Beaux-Arts as well as Spanish colonial and Mediterranean designs.

You’ll find many of these styles in a variety of historic neighborhoods around the city, including Emery Park and several tracts: the Bean Tract (named after early Alhambran Jacob Bean), the Midwick Tract (the location of a former country club) and the Airport Tract named after its former designation as a landing area for Alhambra Airport.

The city has been a destination and home for many celebrities as well, including Judy Garland (who’s said to have performed at the city’s historic vaudeville venue, the Garfield Theatre) and, more infamously, music producer Phil Spector who lived on the estate known as the Pyrenees Castle, which was built in 1926.

Today, the community is home to a large Asian community, which amounts to about half of the population, and a 2010 census gives the estimated median household income as about $51,000.

Two freeways—the San Bernardino Interstate 10 and the Long Beach 710 Freeway—run through parts of the city, and Alhambra is also considering an option to build light-rail transportation that would connect to the Metrolink commuter system.

The Alhambra Unified School District is the city’s main public education institution; there are also several private schools, including the Ramona Convent Secondary School. Ramona Convent’s not only a  private, all-girls Catholic prep school—it’s also the city’s very first school, started in 1889.

History, you see, can be found wherever you look in Alhambra.
