La Puente is Spanish for “the bridge,” a fitting historical reference to the 1769 European introduction to the area. Settlers on the Portola expedition wanted to cross the swamp-like San Gabriel River, but were unable to do so without first constructing a bridge to get their party across.
Like many of the other large land plots in the 18th and 19th centuries, the La Puente area became primarily agricultural land once the 20th century arrived. La Puente in particular was known for having prime walnut and fruit groves.
Today, despite La Puente’s proximity to City of Industry, the area is not a particularly commercial one, and falls somewhere between a traditional suburb and a “bedroom community.” The city has notably been the birthplace or place of residents for numerous professional athletes across all the major American sports.
