Departures is gearing up for production on the story of the San Gabriel River and the surrounding communities -- from Mount Baldy and Azusa, to Whittier and Seal Beach. From the time of the original Tongva settlers, through the founding of the Mission San Gabriel Arcángel (after which the river is named), to the opening of the Los Angeles Aqueduct that created many of the surrounding communities, the San Gabriel River has been the spine of civilization for many generations.
Part of our exploration includes mapping important places that reflect the shifts and characteristics of the river and its surroundings. To better construct the narrative, we invite you, the community, to share stories, memories, and places of interest that you find important to include in the story of the San Gabriel River.
Using the form below, send us any story or ideas that may help tell the story of the San Gabriel River. Which places in the area are important to you, and why? Do you have any stories that relate to the neighborhood? Your contribution will help to enrich this upcoming installment of Departures.
