Monterey Park traces its heritage back to the Reconstruction era in U.S. history, which was the time immediately following the Civil War. At that time, ranchers developed sprawling ranch properties in the area, and the infrastructure steadily continued to take root.
When we look at the Monterey Park of today, there’s no way to separate the city’s identity from its massive Asian population, estimated at around 67% of the total. About half of Monterey Park’s residents are Chinese, and the depth of the Chinese cultural experience that can be found in Monterey Park is truly one of Southern California’s great treasures.
In the 1980s, following several decades of influx from Asian immigrants, the Monterey Park area had really begun to blossom, and began receiving the nickname of the “Chinese Beverly Hills” by the media. Residents took pride in this, but discontent was sown throughout the 1980s and 1990s over requirements for English language signs on business, as well as other mandates that didn’t sit well with the city’s proud immigrant population.
If you’re visiting Monterey Park, you absolutely need to visit the Garvey Ranch Observatory, which is operated by the Los Angeles Astronomical Society and can be visited by the public at no cost.
