Pasadena is located on land that was once part of the San Gabriel Mission (1771) of the California Mission Chain. Farmers, who came from Indiana in 1874, founded an Indiana Colony here. History Page for Pasadena.
On April 22, 1875, the stockholders of the San Gabriel Orange Grove Association formally named their community "Pasadena." A Chippewa Indian word for "Valley," the name has also been interpreted as "Key of the Valley" or "Crown of the Valley." The adoption of both crown and key in the official city seal reflect these meanings.
