City of La Puente is in Los Angeles County, California, United States of America. The city had a population of 39,816 at the 2010 census and is located approximately 20 miles (32 km) east of downtown Los Angeles.
There are approximately 3.5 square miles (9.1 km2) of land in La Puente, which is mostly flat, located at 34°1′57′′N 117°57′19′′W (34.032410, -117.955195).
A Kizh tribe originally occupied the area now occupied by the city of La Puente. Language specialists translate Awingna as a place of dwelling. The chief of Awingna (who held sway over several other nearby villages) was baptized in 1774 at Mission San Gabriel.
On the National Register of Historic Places is the La Puente Valley Women’s Club
During the Portola expedition in 1769, the first Europeans visited parts of Alta California inland. The party camped along the east bank of the San Gabriel River on July 30, what is now Bassett, in unincorporated California. Juan Crespi noted in his diary that they had to build a bridge (Spanish for “bridge”) to cross the San Gabriel River the following day.
With the establishment of Mission San Gabriel, Awingna and what is now La Puente became Rancho La Puente, an outpost and ranch established as part of the mission. Jedediah Smith and his party visited this rancho in November 1826, the first Americans to travel overland to California.
During the 1830s, former mission ranchos were transferred to private ownership after missions were secularized. The 48,000-acre Rancho La Puente (190 km2) was granted to John Rowland and William Workman in 1842. The area was originally named Puente (bridge in Spanish) in 1884 because the noun used in old Spanish was feminine, compared to modern Spanish el Puente. It’s written with the spelling “the bridge” in Crespi’s diary, and this spelling has persisted over time.
As early as the 1930s, the area was known for its fruit and walnut groves. La Puente even held the world’s largest walnut packing factory for a time Before being closed and turned into housing for the 20th century, the tiny airport called ‘Skyranch’ moved to the suburbs from 1944 to 1951. La Puente is heavily urbanized today, but many remnants of its founding, such as the Workman and Temple Homestead Museum in City of Industry, remain.
La Puente has been undergoing redevelopment of its business districts. Local governments, however, have been relatively unsuccessful in attracting big-box retailers and restaurant chains. Several aging strip malls from the 1950s remain in La Puente.
