The history of San Marino, California is amongst the most interesting of SoCal tales. Named for the Ancient Republic of San Marino, which was founded when Saint Marinus fled his home in Dalmatia, known today as modern Croatia, during the time of the Diocletianic Persecutions of Christians. Arriving at Monte Titano, Saint Marinus found refuge and a location suitable to build a chapel and establish a monastic community in 301 A.D. The seal of the City of San Marino, California is modeled to depict these events and the Three Towers of San Marino. The design originally included a crown to represent the monarchy but was later replaced with five stars to more appropriately represent the five members of the city’s government.
While the City of San Marino was originally known for its old-money wealth and being predominantly populated by the region’s WASP gentry, today it’s as colorful and diverse as you would expect from any Southern California community. Some of the most noteworthy places to visit in San Marino include the Huntington Library and Gardens, The Edwin Hubble House, Huntington Desert Garden, Hermon Park, Storrier-Stearns Japanese Garden, and the University of Southern California residence of the President. The expansive SoCal landscape of San Marino has also made the city a popular filming location for movies such as Father of the Bride, starring Steve Martin, Memoirs of a Geisha, The Holiday, Monster-In-Law, Anger Management, The Wedding Singer, The Wedding Planner, Starsky & Hutch, Intolerable Cruelty, Beverly Hills Ninja, One Hour Photo, Legally Blonde, American Wedding, Mystery Men, S1m0ne, Enough, Men In Black II, Charlie’s Angels, and The Sweetest Thing.
