Los Angeles Plaza
California State Historic Landmark 156
#156 Los Angeles Plaza
This site was part of the lands originally granted to El Pueblo de la Reina de
Los Angeles in 1781 by the king of Spain, Carlos III, under the Spanish law of the Indies. The
first plaza of the pueblo had been located to the southeast, close to the Rio
Porciuncula (Los Angeles River). When the river flooded, the pueblo was moved to higher
ground. Shortly after the dedication of the plaza church in December 1822, the plaza's location
was changed again to the present site.
El Pueblo de Los Angeles Historical Monument, 500 block of N Main St (125 Paseo de La Plaza), Los Angeles.
