The first plaza of the pueblo had been located to the southeast, close to the Rio Porciuncula (Los Angeles River). When the river flooded, the pueblo was moved to higher ground. Shortly after the dedication of the plaza church in December 1822, the plaza's location was changed again to the present site." -- unknown author, 2001.
