El Pueblo Park Association supports El Pueblo de Los Ángeles Historic Monument, the historic heart of Los Angeles. Founded by the Spanish in 1781, the modern city grew outwards from this area that still contains the city’s first graveyard, the city’s oldest church and house, multiple museums and exhibit halls, as well as Olvera Street, the world famous Mexican marketplace.
