Genereal San Martín is located in Nothern Greater Buenos Aires, 5 km away from the City of Buenos Aires.
The district is named after the general José de San Martín, the honorable Argentine leader in the battles agains Spain in The War of Independence. The former name of General San Martin, Santos Lugares de Rosas (Rosas' Holy Places) was changed in 1856 to avoid resentment about the defeat of Juan Manuel de Rosas who had many followers. One part of the name, "Santos Lugares" (Holy Places) dated back as far as the first Monks reciding in the area who had named the lands "Santos Lugares de Jerusalén" (Holy Places of Jerusalem).
Today San Martin is also known as the "Capital de la Tradicion" (Capital of Tradition), among other things because the writer Jose Hernandez (the author of "Martin Fierro", one of the best pieces of Argentinean literature through time) was born there.
In 1864 in the municipal elections that took place, .
From the moment when Eustaquio Marín, Bernardino Manzanares, Rufino Uriarte, and Luis Naón were elected as the municipal leaders in 1864 two things that greatly helped to the development of San Martin took place. First of all, "The Great Immigration," that brought a lot of Europeans came to Argentina looking for new opportunities. The laying of the railway tracks was the other, which of course made it much easier for the immigrating families to spread through the areas lands.
In 1888 the San Martin district had some land added to it from another of Greater Buenos Aires' districts, San Jose de Flores, and at the same time had some lands removed from another part of the district, these lands becoming part of the City of Buenos Aires. In this same time period is when railway companies started to build their installations and workshops, which slowly but steadily started to replace the up until then main activity of San Martin that had been cultivation in orchards.
On November 2 1911, San Martin was officially declared a city.
From 1920 to 1930 with the increase of cars in its streets and all around more people living in the city, projects of urbanization and pavement of streets began.
Finally in 1959 the South and South-East parts of General San Martin are declared to be the district of "Tres de Febrero" (Feburay 3).
