Duarte history:

Here is a history page for Duarte.

Andres Duarte and his wife were granted almost 7,000 acres of land in the upper San Gabriel Valley. He named his property, "Rancho Azusa de Duarte." By the mid-1800's, most of the original land had been sold to pay off debts. One of the purchasers was Dr. Nehemiah Beardslee. He began the first school in Duarte and established the first water lines. Eventually all the land was sub-divided and sold off into individual lots.

The community grew over the years. By 1957, many in Duarte desired incorporation. Duarte was officially incorporated on 22 August 1957.
