Rowland Heights is an unincorporated area in and below the Puente Hills in the San Gabriel Valley, in Los Angeles County, California, United States. The area has a high Taiwanese population and was known as Little Taipei in the 1980s and 1990s, when it saw an influx of wealthy immigrants from Taiwan. A number of corporations, such as Newegg, FedEx, DIRECTV, and Fashion Nova, as well as other technology and import and export businesses, are located in neighboring City of Industry. Rowland Heights has also attracted immigrants from mainland China because the area is advertised in China as having high-end homes and convenient shopping centers. The city has developed an eclectic suburban "Chinatown", "Little Tokyo", and "Koreatown", mostly in the form of upscale strip malls. The population was 48,231 at the 2020 census. It has become an area largely by Taiwanese, due to its high concentration of Taiwanese restaurants and businesses and become the center for Chinese commercial and cultural activity in the southeastern region of the region. The Mexican land grant Rancho La Puente was granted by Governor Juan B. Alvarado to John Rowland in April 1842, totaling about 18,000 acres (7,284 ha) Three years later, Governor Pio Pico amended the grant, enlarging it to nearly 49,000acre (19,830 ha) and adding William Workman as a co-owner. In 1868, after they received their federal land patent the prior year, Rowland and Workman divided RanchoLa Puente, with Workman largely taking the western and central portions and Rowland the northern, southern and eastern sections.
