Located just northwest of La Puente, California is the suburb of Bassett. Originally owned by Joseph Workman, and known as part of Rancho La Puente, Bassett was established in 1895 as Bassett Township. Today, Bassett is a quiet suburb of La Puente located between three major thoroughfares. Interstate 10 to the north, and Pomona Freeway to the south, provides access west to Los Angeles or east to Pomona. On the western border is Interstate 605, which runs south to the coast near Long Beach.Today, Bassett is a great place for families to visit or reside, and is home to well established schools, businesses, and conveniences. With less than a half hour drive to Los Angeles, Bassett is a nice reprieve from the big city.
