The island has a rich history. It was first inhabited by the Tongva Native Americans, who called it Pimu. In 1542, Spanish explorer Juan Rodriguez Cabrillo was the first European to visit the island. In 1846, it was annexed by the United States and eventually became a part of Los Angeles County in 1853.
