Historic Resources Survey

The City of San Gabriel is embarking upon the completion of a citywide Historic Resources Survey – the first of its kind in the City. A team of architectural historians from Architectural Resources Group (ARG) will be completing this project over the next year and will be working closely with City staff, the Historic Preservation and Cultural Resource Commission, the San Gabriel City Council, and members of the community. The overarching purpose of the survey is to identify, document, and evaluate places of cultural, historical, and architectural significance. Survey findings will be used to help inform future planning decisions and to enhance the City’s historic preservation program.
