Living in La Mesa

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.
