Living in La Mesa

There's a lot to like about La Mesa, including the rentals available in the area. Many La Mesa apartments for rent are close to neighboring cities, including El Cajon, Lemon Grove and San Diego.

La Mesa celebrated its centennial in 2012, but the community traces much of its development back to 1906. The city developed from an agricultural territory to a residential community after Sherman Grable purchased 100 acres in the Date Avenue area from a local land developer. Grable and Charles Park created the Park-Grable Investment Company, which turned 200 acres in central La Mesa into 1,000 lots. On February 16, 1912, the city was officially incorporated with a population of 700 residents.
