[this is good] I find this website very interesting. I currently live in Montebello and decided to type it wikipedia. I am shocked to just realize how much history is the area. Today I plan on going to the Old Mission (site or structure) and try to see what the people from 1771 saw.

Welcome to the Raven Jake site, Martin - most people don't realize that the area around the San Gabriel Mission is even older than Los Angeles. And there are great stories around here that really make history come alive. Make sure you check out the Juan Mattias Sanchez adobe (I'll admit it's easy to get "adobe burnout" - how many old houses can you look at? - but the people who created them and their rise and reversals of fortune are just amazing)
