About Downey, California
Downey is a city located in southeast Los Angeles County, California, United States, 13 mi (21 km) southeast of downtown Los Angeles. It is considered part of the Gateway Cities. The city is the birthplace of the Apollo space program. It is also the home of the oldest still operational McDonald’s restaurant in the world. As of the 2010 census, the city had a total population of 111,779.
The area that is now Downey was originally inhabited by the Tongva, later named the Gabrielino by the Spanish. There were four nearby Tongva settlements mentioned in archival records. The villages of Naxaaw’nga, Sehat, Chokiishnga and Huutnga were all located in or around Downey, between the San Gabriel River and Rio Hondo. It is impossible to relate the original location descriptions, based on ranchos and land grants, to more specific sites identifiable by today’s landmarks.
In September of 1771, the Mission San Gabriel Arcángel was founded near these concentrations of Tongva, on a Whittier Narrows bluff overlooking the Rio Hondo. In 1776, flooding forced the relocation of the mission to its present site in San Gabriel.
In 1784, the Mexican Governor Fages granted Manuel Nieto, a former soldier,300,000 acres. This was the largest land concession made during the Spanish control of California. The Spanish concessions were unlike the later Mexican land grants. There were a total of 25 of these special concessions, which permitted grazing rights while the title remained with the Spanish crown.
The Rancho Los Nietos passed to Manuel Nieto’s four children upon his death. In 1833 his heirs petitioned Mexican Governor José Figueroa to partition the property. The northwestern portion of the original rancho was granted as Rancho Santa Gertrudes to Josefa Cota, the widow of Manuel’s son, Antonio Nieto. Santa Gertrudes was a sizable rancho and contained the old Nietos homestead, which was a center of social life. In 1848, after the Mexican–American War concluded, many of the ranchos were obtained by affluent Anglo-Americans who were immigrating west under the United States manifest destiny doctrine, and marrying into established Spanish families.
Some of Downey’s settlers came from Ireland. Downey was founded by and named for the former and youngest ever governor of California, John Gately Downey, who was born in Ireland. Although he was an Irish Democrat, he supported the Republican Lincoln in his efforts to keep the Union intact during the American Civil War. He pioneered the modern subdivision with land he acquired between the Rio Hondo and the San Gabriel River, in about 1865. Downey was convinced that oranges would flourish in Southern California, so he imported several varieties, and therefore set in motion what became one of the state’s biggest cash crops. In conjunction with the construction of the Tehachapi Loop, the Southern Pacific Railroad arrived in 1873.
After World War II

Farmers in the area grew grain, corn, castor beans and fruit, and by 1935 Downey was characterized as an “orange-grove town”. Downey was incorporated in 1956, and instituted a charter form of government in 1964. Suburban homes and factories replaced the farms after World War II.
Vultee Aircraft was Downey’s largest employer during World War II, producing 15% of all of America’s military aircraft by 1941. The company was a pioneer in the use of women in manufacturing positions, and was the first aircraft company to build airplanes on a powered assembly line. Vultee became a part of North American Aviation, (later North American Rockwell, then Rockwell International which was then bought by the Boeing company) whose facilities were the birthplace of the systems for the Apollo Space Program as well as the Space Shuttle. For over 70 years, Downey’s Rockwell NASA plant produced and tested many of the 20th century’s greatest aviation, missile, and space endeavors. By the early 1970s, the facilities encompassed some 1,700,000 square feet (160,000 m2) of enclosed area over more than 200 acres (81 ha). But, by the post-Cold War 1990s, Downey was brutally hit by cutbacks in the defense budget. Rockwell International, which once had more than 30,000 employees, had fewer than 5,000 in 1992. The seventy-year history of airplane and space vehicle manufacturing in Downey came to an end when the Rockwell plant closed in 1999. The former North American Rockwell plant was demolished, and the site now features the Columbia Memorial Space Center, Downey Landing shopping center, a Kaiser Permanente hospital, a city recreation fields park, and the former movie studio site of Downey Studios.
Near the center of the city lies what was in the 1960s one of the busiest intersections in California, the intersection of Lakewood Boulevard (State Route 19) and Firestone Boulevard (former State Route 42). Route 19 was a major thoroughfare between Pasadena and the port at Long Beach, and Route 42 was along part of the old Spanish El Camino Real trail that connected Pueblo de Los Angeles to San Diego.
In the 1960s the town’s Downey Records achieved some notoriety with recordings such as The Chantays’ surfing instrumental “Pipeline”; nearly two decades later, Downey local music scene led to the founding of The Blasters and Dark Angel.
Downey is home to Rancho Los Amigos National Rehabilitation Center, which is the main public rehabilitation hospital for Los Angeles County. Rancho Los Amigos is renowned worldwide for its innovative contributions to the care of spinal cord injuries and post-polio syndrome.
Downey was featured in the 2008 American action comedy film Pineapple Express. Many of the buildings along Florence Avenue are seen in a driving sequence early in the film.
Notable people born in Downey include Weird Al Yankovich, The Carpenters, James Hetfield, Evan Longoria, Bob Meusel, and Ed Fiori.
