About Brea

The area was first settled by the Tongva (or Gabrieleños) and Chumash Native American tribes hundreds of years before the city's founding. The land was developed into a Spanish rancho called "Rancho La Brea" in 1842, when California became part of the United States. In 1864, English-born immigrant W.H. Hollister purchased Rancho La Brea for $60,000; his son Edward would later found a successful oil company on lands adjacent to this property that bear his name today: The Union Oil Company of California (Unocal). During World War II, an internment camp for Japanese Americans operated in what is now the City's Harwood neighborhood (see also Los Angeles County fairgrounds).
