Bird's Eye View of Azusa, Los Angeles County, 1887

Azusa rests along the San Gabriel River where it exits the San Gabriel Mountains using a winding canyon. The area that later became Azusa was widely used for agricultural purposes until the 1880's when a community was designated. Azusa was incorporated as a city in 1898.

This rendition of early Azusa was drawn by E.S. Moore and published by Jonathan Slauson in 1887. Slauson is credited with the planning of the town.

This map shows labeled streets, buildings, vineyards, and railroad route. There are inset illustrations of the Atchison, Topeka & Santa Fe railroad depot and the Hotel Azusa. The San Gabriel Mountains and Mount San Antonio are seen in the distance.
