The early beginnings of Gardena as a community of homes, apart from the
great rancho estates of the Dominguez, Amestoy, Ducazau, and Rosecrans
families, date back to the 1880s. A Ventura man, Spencer R. Thorpe, is
credited with having started the first settlement in Gardena Valley, centered
near the intersection now known as 161st Street and Figueroa.
The City of Gardena was incorporated on September 11, 1930. It combined
the rural communities of Gardena, Moneta, and Strawberry Park into a Municipal
Corporation, Sixth Class City. At that time Gardena was a small farming
community of about 20,000 people. By action of the State Legislature in
1955, all Sixth Class Cities were officially designated as General Law Cities.
As a General Law City there is no charter other than the laws, ordinances and
resolutions passed and adopted by the City Council, and the appropriate statutes
of the State of California.
Today Gardena is an active and progressive residential and business community
with a City government that prides itself in providing a full range of qualified services
to the community.
