Created in 1850 at the time of California statehood, LA County is one of the original counties of California. In 1851 and 1852, it stretched all the way from the California coast to the border of Nevada, but sections began to split up as the population continued to grow. Today it spans 4,083 square miles, which is larger than Delaware and Rhode Island put together. The county continues along 70 miles of the Pacific Ocean and several rivers flow into it, including the Los Angeles River, Rio Hondo, San Gabriel River, and the Santa Clara River. Mountain ranges also encompass the area, most notably the Santa Monica and San Gabriel Mountains. San Clemente and Santa Catalina Islands, which are part of the Channel Islands archipelago, are also part of LA County.
