A Brief History
It is known that the area now comprising the city was first inhabited by members of the Tongva or Gabrielino Indian tribes before European settlement in the 1500s. In 1846, Mexican governor Governor Pio Pico granted the tract of land to Jose Loreto and Juan Capistrano Sepulveda and dubbed Rancho de los Palos Verdes. The town was officially incorporated as just Rancho Palos Verdes in 1973.
As an affluent suburb of L.A. known for its sweeping oceanic views, Rancho Palos Verdes is popular with residents and tourists alike. In 2009, the city designated two square miles as the Palos Verdes Nature Preserve with the cooperation of the Palos Verdes Peninsula Land Conservancy organizations. The reserve marks the largest area of protected open space north of San Diego and south of Santa Barbara. Other beloved attractions include the Point Vicente Lighthouse, the Point Vicente Interpretive Center for whale-watching, and the historically-renowned Wayfarers Chapel.
