Ramat-Gan originated as an agricultural community next to Tel Aviv. The pioneers that purchased the territory in 1914 called it “Ir Ganim” (“Garden City”), with the goal of founding a community of private farms. The first residents arrived in 1921, following World War 1 and the British Mandate governance. Ramat-Gan was declared a city on January 21, 1950.
