Adrogué is part of part of Almirante Brown in Southern Greater Buenos Aires, 20 km away from the City of Buenos Aires.
This was one of the areas that the people fled to during the colera and yellow fever epidemics that came to the city of Buenos Aires, especially the people living in the neighborhoods San Telmo and Barracas that were the ones most affected, during the 1860s. Adrogué was of easy access thanks to the Southern Railroad (Now called General Roca) that still runs from Constitucion to Glew.
Because of the many families that were moving away from the city of Buenos Aires and looking for a new home, Esteban Adrogue had the idea of founding a new town with the characterized by fresh air, vegetation and an urban design different to everything of its time.
The place where the area Almirante Brown was founded (also known as Adrogué) was acquired by Don Esteban Adrogue from an agriculturalist named of Tomas Paredes. The terrain had five country houses, that in the beginning were summer residences. Mr. Adrogue moved to one of those houses after he left his old residence in the town La Paz (currently known as Lomas de Zamora). Being so far away from the regular urban centers, Esteban Adrogue decided to create a town on his recently bought lands, and he asked the Railway Company to build a station close to his fields. He donated the plots of land and money necessary for the constriction, and the work was completed in the year 1872. On September 29th of the same year the first train arrived to the Adrogué station.
Also in the year 1872, the engineers Jose and Nicolas Canale made the design of the new town with revolutionary diagonal streets, first of its kind in Argentina.
The next year, On September 30th, 1873, close to a year after the first train arrived to the Adrogué station, the Municipality of the area is created and given the name suggested by Mr. Adrogué, Almirante Brown. Some month later after a dispute of what city should be the main one in the area, Adrogue was finally designated as the head of Almirante Brown.
Little by little Adrogue started to loose its characteristics of a quite residential town and took the qualities of an active city. Its progress was only accentuated when more and more families moved there from Buenos Aires, and other areas from the South of Greater Buenos Aires. The installation of industries, commerce and the construction of homes and the pavement of streets also had a great impact in the fast development of Adrogue.
