 Eagle Rock takes its name from this unique rock formation that resembles an eagle in flight. Indians inhabited the caves of the Eagle Rock for centuries before its discovery by the Spanish explorer Portola in 1770. The Eagle Rock, in 1784, became a marker of the first land grant in California when the King of Spain granted it to Don Jose Verdugo. In 1870, the caves were inhabited by the Mexican bandit Vasquez. In later years, as settlers began arriving in the area, the name of Eagle Rock was attached to include a large area of land west of the rock, Eagle Rock incorporated itself as a city in 1911, and was annexed to the City of Los Angeles in 1923. In 1914 Occidental College moved to its spacious 95 acre rolling hills site situated in Eagle Rock.
