The first explorer to reach the area was Gaspar de Portola and other members of his expedition, in 1769. It was founded in 1787 as a mission town and farming and agricultural land.
Today, Guadalupe is known for its tired appearance - due to its shabby and decaying buildings and downtown area, flat landscape, surrounding agricultural land, industrial areas, sand dunes, and proximity to local beaches.
