The name Rancho La Brea was applied originally to a Mexican land grant in the vicinity of Los Angeles, but as now generally understood it refers to an area of approximately 32 acres (13 hectares) on Wilshire Boulevard a few miles west of the heart of the city. The unique paleontologic features of this locality were first fully appreciated a quarter of a century or more ago.
