Since the 1840's...

the Irvington District has been welcoming settlers and the Gold Rush era was one of the largest booms. Fast forward to the 1970's when a group of community leaders formed the Irvington Business Association and helped to resurrect the Irvington Monument in the location where you see it now and a pattern emerges - we care about Irvington.
