Living in Downey, CA

Downey was named after John Gately Downey, an Irish immigrant who originally came to the area during the California Gold Rush. Downey eventually became the seventh governor of California.

Downey began its first major period of growth following the Civil War, when many southerners traveled to the area in search of new opportunities. By 1873, the "Tract of the Downy Land Association" had been developed. As more residents continued to flock to the region, much of Downey's layout was determined by the railroad, with 10 acres of the 1873 tract map being designated for the railroad. By the turn of the century, Downey had solidified its spot as a commercial district and business hub.

Today, Downey continues to be a strong presence in southern California business and trade.
