Monrovia

 The string of communities found along the foothills of the San Gabriel Mountains are an appealing destination for homebuyers, and Monrovia is no exception to the rule.

Like its neighbors, Monrovia mingles tree-lined neighborhoods, history and quaint village appeal with the benefits of easy access to the rest of the San Gabriel Valley and beyond via the 210 Foothill Freeway and public transportation.

After L.A., Santa Monica and Pasadena, Monrovia is one of the oldest cities in the Los Angeles Basin, founded in 1887, and today it’s a thriving residential community with a population of about 37,000 people.

Monrovia is a city of convenience—within easy reach of cultural centers in nearby Pasadena, the Los Angeles County Arboretum in Arcadia, and the Huntington Library in San Marino. But it also provides plenty of local interest and activity for residents in its own bustling downtown located along Myrtle Avenue, bounded by Huntington Drive to the south and Foothill Boulevard to the north.

“Convenience” is a term that not only applies to the city’s public transportation opportunities past and present –the Pacific Electric “red cars” enabled Monrovians to commute to L.A. back in 1903; a planned extension of the Metrolink Gold Line will make that a reality again today—but also to food. When you think of food that’s fast and delicious, the name “McDonald’s” may come to mind. The fast food giant started out in Monrovia in 1937 as a small restaurant called “The Airdrome” before it was relocated to San Bernardino.

For residents with an even greater appetite for history, Monrovia is also the location of the Upton Sinclair House, the home of famed muckraking journalist and author Upton Sinclair, perhaps best known for the novel “The Jungle,” which exposed the corruption of the meatpacking industry.

Monrovia’s history is so rich and diverse, in fact, that the city was honored in 1995 with an “All America City” Award from the National Civic League.
