The area of West Los Angeles has a very rich history. After the Spanish colonized it, the area became part of the Rancho San Vincente y Santa Monica. The U.S. victory in the Mexican-American War caused an influx of Anglo settlers to the area. In the 20th Century, many Japanese immigrants came to the area and established orchards and nurseries, many of which are still in operation today. There is also a large Mexican-American community, which further adds to the ethnic vibrancy of the city.1
