Rugged mountains and foothills form a spectacular backdrop to a community where ancient peoples lived more than 6,000 years ago. From the snow covered peak of Mt. San Antonio towering over 10,000 feet, the San Gabriel River drains a watershed of more than 600 square miles. The City of Azusa was founded in 1887 and incorporated as a general law city in 1898.
Today, Azusa is a model older suburban community undergoing growth and rejuvenation and will be home to two future Gold Line Stations – one at Alameda Street, in the heart of the city’s business and civic district, and the other at Citrus Avenue, steps away from Citrus College and Azusa Pacific University. Together, these institutions of higher education expand the daytime population of the city by thousands of students, faculty and visitors.
