History

Early inhabitants, Spanish discovery and settlement

The first known inhabitants of present day Manhattan Beach were the Engnovangas rancheria Indians. The Indians survived off of corbina fish they harvested in the shallows, along with other species of surf fish.


The Engnovangas often made the 3-mile (5 km) trek south to the salt flats in present day Redondo Beach, CA to harvest the mineral. The old Salt Flat is now occupied by Southern California Edison, roughly located on Herondo Street and North Harbor Drive. The salty estuary was said to be only 150 yards (140 m) from the ocean and approximately 120,000 square yards in area.


In 1781, when El Pueblo de Nuestra Señora la Reina de Los Angeles was established, a small, one-lane dirt road was cleared to connect the Salt Flat and Los Angeles. Aviation Boulevard now runs almost directly on top of the old Salt Flat road. Three years later, in 1784, the Spanish government established "ranchos," or land parcels, all along the South Bay. The land grants did not convey titles to the land; rather they simply gave permission to migrant farmers to use the land as they wished.[citation needed] Flag Seal Nickname: City of Angels Location Location within Los Angeles County in the state of California Coordinates , Government State County California Los Angeles County Mayor Antonio Villaraigosa (D) Geographical characteristics Area     City 1,290. ...


In 1784, a Spanish land grant for Rancho San Pedro was issued to Juan Jose Dominguez, signed by King Carlos III of the Spanish Empire. Rancho Sausal Redondo was a part of the original Rancho San Pedro. (see note # 7 in reference). Juan Jose Dominguez, a Spanish soldier, came to San Diego, California with the Gaspar de Portolà expedition, and later to San Juan Capistrano and San Gabriel, with Father Juniperro Serra. ... Charles III (January 20, 1716 – December 14, 1788) was king of Spain 1759–1788 (as Carlos III de Borbon), King of the Two Sicilies 1735–1759 (as Carlo VII), and Duke of Parma 1732–1735 (as Carlo I). ... An anachronous map of the Spanish Empire (1492-1898). ...


In 1822, the newly-established Mexican government sold the land to the highest bidder. Some of the Ranchos purchased by farmers were: Aguaje de la Centinela, La Ballona, La Tijera, and Sausal Redondo, which translates into "round clump of willows." (Note that many streets in the South Bay region are named after these ranchos.) In 1822, Rancho Sausal Redondo (present day Manhattan Beach) was purchased by Antonio Ygnacio Avila, who mainly used the 22,500 acres (91 km²) for sheep grazing.


Most of the original Californio land owners could not validate these properties with the US government after the Mexican-American war due to the cost of surveys, filing forms and legal fees, therefor, many lost ownership to wealthy Americans.

In 1863, a Scottish immigrant, Sir Robert Burnett, purchased Rancho Sausal Redondo and Rancho Aguaje De Centinela from Avila's heirs for $33,000. Ten years later in 1873, Burnett leased the ranch to a Canadian, Daniel Freeman, and returned to Scotland. Freeman moved his wife and three children onto the ranch and started growing various crops. On May 4, 1885 Freeman bought the ranch from Burnett for $140,000. Image File history File links Metadata No higher resolution available. ...

Geography

Manhattan Beach is located at 33°53′20″N, 118°24′19″W (33.888980, -118.405357)GR1.


According to the United States Census Bureau, the city has a total area of 26.8 km² (10.4 mi²). 10.2 km² (3.9 mi²) of it is land and 16.7 km² (6.4 mi²) of it (62.07%) is water. ] Manhattan Beach features 2.1 miles (3.4 km) of ocean frontage, 40 acres (162,000 m²) of recreational beach, and a total of 59 acres (239,000 m²) of parkland in 10 parks, 1 municipal golf course, and 1 parkway, the Valley/Ardmore "Greenbelt" [1].

Residents divide the city into several distinct neighborhoods, including the Sand Section, Hill Section, Tree Section, Gas Lamp Section, Manhattan Heights, East Manhattan Beach, Liberty Village, and El Porto. The Hill Section is a higher priced locale where many of the residences are remodeled and situated on steep hills to afford panoramic ocean and Los Angeles views. The nearby Sand Section is notable for its dense development and higher rate of condominiums and multi-family properties. Most commercial activity whose clientèle are beach-oriented position their establishments here, sometimes within meters of private homes. One of it's most highly trafficked streets, The Strand, features high-end Oceanfront properties. Desired by families for its close knit structure, the Tree Section is essentially a smaller Hill Section, minus the hills, of course, and with slightly smaller lots. El Porto is a beach community that is part of Manhattan Beach, a city in the South Bay area of Greater Los Angeles in Southern California. ...


Liberty Village is located at the north-easternmost section of Manhattan Beach. It is characterized by World War II era housing that originally serviced the employees of the then dominant local defense contractors such as Lockheed, Northrop and Hughes. Since it is considered to be among the most desirable cities in Los Angeles, and the city zoning provides for relatively lenient dwelling-to-land coverage, much of Manhattan Beach's housing stock has been remodeled from small single family houses into larger houses ranging to 4,000 square feet (400 m²) on lots approximating 5,000 square feet (500 m²).
