Story of the Rose Garden?

Can someone confirm or add to the story of the establishment of the Rose Garden? I was told that long
ago departing the SB Mission after mass, a woman looked out at the shacks of houses with pigs, chickens
and other animals and decided to help raise funds, partly from her own family, and buy the property where
the Plaza Rubio houses are along with the Rose Garden which then was all one parcel. The row of houses
were constructed and what is now the rose garden was contributed to the city. Is this a SB myth or ? Was
also told there was no gas heating in those days and the adobe walls had electrical coils built in them.
