The city of El Monte is in Los Angeles County, California. This city lies in the San Gabriel Valley, east of Los Angeles.
Known historically as “The End of the Santa Fe Trail”, El Monte’s slogan is “Welcome to Friendly El Monte.” El Monte’s population decreased from 113,475 in the 2010 census to 109,450 in the 2020 census. At the end of 2020, El Monte was California’s 64th-largest city.
Located between the San Gabriel and Rio Hondo rivers is El Monte, a marshy area roughly where the Santa Fe Dam Recreation Area was once located. The area is reputed to be able to grow anything. Spanish soldiers and missionaries frequently rested here between 1770 and 1830. The area was called ‘El Monte’ which means ‘the mount’ or ‘the mountain’ in Spanish. The name implies a mountain, but there were no mountains in the valley. In archaic Spanish, the word means “the wood” of that era. Between the two rivers lies a rich, low-altitude region blanketed with wispy willows, alders, and cattails, discovered by the first explorers. El Monte is about seven miles long and four miles wide. In the 1850s, the State Legislature organized California into manageable townships and called them El Monte Townships. Within a few years, the name was changed back to El Monte.
For fire services and emergency medical response, the City of El Monte contracts with the Los Angeles County Fire Department.
El Monte police officers provide emergency services to the citizens who live in the city. There are 117 sworn officers.
Neighborhood Services enforces health and safety codes, municipal codes, zoning regulations and building codes for the City of El Monte. Several Neighborhood Services Officers investigate complaints and prevent violations from occurring. This division also includes the Animal Control Unit. Officers in this unit respond to all calls regarding animals.
Variety shows originated in El Monte. KTLA-TV’s 1950s show Hometown Jamboree was produced at the American Legion Stadium in El Monte, California. Cliffie Stone, who helped popularize country music in California, hosted and produced the Saturday night stage show.
When the volatile racial climate and the hostility toward rock & roll combined in the 1950s, police pressure forced rock & roll shows from Los Angeles. Johnny Otis and other rock and roll performers performed at the El Monte Legion Stadium outside the city limits. Teenagers from all over Southern California loved seeing Johnny Otis and his band every Friday and Saturday night at El Monte Legion Stadium during the fifties. (Johnny Otis, Alan Freed, and Dick Clark were the major players in the growing rock and roll industry.) Ritchie Valens, Rosie & the Originals, Brenton Wood, Earth, Wind & Fire, The Grateful Dead, Dick Dale and his Del-Tones, and Johnny “Guitar” Watson all performed there. Huggy Boy and Art Laboe, two highly publicized disc jockeys of the 1960s who featured many popular record artists in their Friday Night Dances, contributed significantly to the stadium’s popularity. Teenagers of the era liked to hang out at “El Monte Legion Stadium”, as it was often called. Closed-circuit telecasts of The Beatles, Beach Boys, and Lesly Gore were shown in the El Monte Legion Stadium from March 14-15, 1964.
