La Puente General Information:
La Puente is a city in Los Angeles County, California, United States. The population was 41,063 at the 2000 census.
In 1769, the Gaspar de Portolà expedition (the first European exploration party in the Los Angeles area), along with Father Junípero Serra, built a bridge over the San Jose Creek. In 1884, the area was named Puente (bridge in Spanish; in old Spanish the noun was often feminine, as opposed to modern Spanish el puente). The community began in 1841 when European settlers arrived from New Mexico and obtained the 48,000 acre (194 km²) Rancho La Puente.
The area was known for its fruit and walnut groves during the 1930s. The city was even home to the world’s largest walnut packing plant. Today, the city is heavily-urbanized, but the area still has some historical landmarks from its founding days nearby, for instance, the Workman and Temple Family Homestead Museum in neighboring City of Industry, California.
