If Azusa lived up to the reputation aggrandized from the glib assessment that it was the city with everything from A to Z in the U.S.A., no one would want to live anywhere else. Hyperbole aside, many Azusa residents love the place just as it is. This vibrant city grew from a citrus town to a bustling suburb nestled in the foothills of the San Gabriel Mountains. Also known as the Canyon City onthe banks of the San Gabriel River, Azusa initially was a village of the Gabrieleno tribe before becoming Henry Dalton s Rancho Azusa during rule by Spain and later Mexico, and continued to grow duringCalifornia s fledgling era of U.S. statehood. Founded by Los Angeles banker Jonathan Sayer Slauson in 1887 as a stop on the Santa Fe Railroad, the city was incorporated in 1898."
