History of Bel Air
The Bel Air community was founded in 1923 by Alphonzo Bell, after oil was discovered on his Santa Fe Springs farm property. He purchased a ranch in the area of Los Angeles that is Bel Air today and sub-divided it into large residential lots, and he gave the streets Italian names. Bell also built the Bel-Air Beach Club and the Bel-Air Country Club, and his wife founded the Bel-Air Garden Club.
