Alhambra is a city located in the western San Gabriel Valley region of Los Angeles County, California, United States, approximately eight miles from the Downtown Los Angeles civic center. It was incorporated on July 11, 1903.
The city of Alhambra can rightly boast of its beautiful neighborhoods, with its troves of historic homes in virtually every style popular over the last 100 years. It can also boast of having one of the most remarkable founders of any Southern California city, in the person of Benjamin Wilson. Wilson came to California in the 1800s with dreams of sailing away to China, but a chance meeting with Ramona Yorba, the beautiful daughter of one of the prominent local Californios, convinced him to stay.
He immersed himself completely in the culture of Alta California, learning Spanish, converting to Catholicism and marrying Yorba. His transformation from Yankee to Californio was so complete that he soon became known as Don Benito.
