Overview

Introduction to Baldwin Park, California

Located 17 miles east of Los Angeles in the central San Gabriel Valley region of Los Angeles County is the California city of Baldwin Park. The city's beginnings can be traced back to the mid-1800's when the land now comprising the city was part of cattle grazing land belonging to the San Gabriel Mission. By 1880 the community became known as Vineland and by 1906 the name had changed to Baldwin Park. It was named after Elias J. "Lucky" Baldwin, a wealthy landowner during the late 1800's/early 1900's. The city was incorporated in 1956, becoming the 47th incorporated city in the State of California.

Freeways serving the city are Interstate-10 and Interstate-605. Nearby colleges and universities include Azusa Pacific University, Whittier College, Mt San Antonio College, Pasadena City College, and East Los Angeles College.
