La Mesa the “Jewel of the Hills” is centrally located in the rolling hills of San Diego country, California. It is called the city of “Jewel of hills” because of its lush greenery, rolling hills, and the flock of wild parrots. The city name means “the table” or “plateau” and named so because of its geographical features. The city was founded in 1869, after being used by Spanish missionaries, and was a part of a larger tract, Mission San Diego de Alcala. It was incorporated in 1912 under the general laws of the state of California.
