Fairly similar to other cities in Los Angeles County, Rosemead was originally populated by Native American (Gabrielino ethnic group). Followed by Spanish colony for approximately 2 centuries, the land was officially part of America after the establishment of the Treaty of Guadalupe Hidalgo in 1848. Shortly after the Treaty, there were waves of Anglo-American immigration. Frank Forst and Leonard J. Rose were ones of the pioneers who settled in this territory. They purchased the land between Rosemead Boulevard and Walnut Grove Avenue and transformed it into a ranch for breeding and training horses. The name of the ranch was "Rosemeade" and it was shortened to Rosemead and adopted by the community. The citizens of Rosemead voted to incorporate Rosemead into a city on August 4, 1959. 2
