La Mesa Real Estate


Robert Allison bought 4,000 acres from Arguello in 1868. His ranch and rest stop were known as Allison Springs. The area boomed along with the rest of San Diego in the 1880s when water and rail transportation became available.

Allison and A.S. Crowder filed the La Mesa Springs subdivision map in 1894. The new town grew when Ed Fletcher and William Gross established an artist’s community on the eastern edge of town. Grossmont, a mountain residential area named for Gross, boasted residents such as Owen Wister, author of the Virginian, and several famous performers. In the mid-1920s, Mt. Helix was developed as a residential and avocado growing area.

The area was dotted with small lemon groves and there was a lemon packing house. The downtown area took shape around 1906, when Sherman C. Grable bought 100 acres and began to develop the area laying out a 1,000 lots and building sewers.

The city of La Mesa was incorporated in 1912 with a population of 700. La Mesa has grown from a sleepy agricultural community into a thriving city of 60,000 residents who enjoy its rolling hills and gorgeous views. La Mesa includes the Grossmont Center, a major regional mall, and the La Mesa Springs shopping center.
