About Inglewood, California
Inglewood is a city in west Los Angeles County. Inglewood is home to more than 110,000 residents. It covers approximately nine square miles, and encompasses the following zip codes: 90301, 90302, 90303, 90304, 90305, 90305, 90306, 90307, 90308, 90309, 90310, 90311, and 90312. Inglewood’s rich history begins with the Centinela Adobe, situated on Rancho Agape de la Centinela, which was built in 1834 by Ignacio Machado, son of one of the soldiers protecting the first settlers of Los Angeles on their way from Mexico. After several additions and owners, two land grants-Rancho Agape de Cantilena and Rancho Causal Armando were bought by Sir Robert Burnett of Scotland, leased by and later sold to Daniel Freeman from Canada. Influenced by Charles Nordhoff’s “California for Health, Pleasure and Residence: A Book for Travelers and Settlers,” Freeman settled in Cantilena Ranch, where he felt the cool sea breeze would benefit his wife’s poor health. There he built a vast empire through dry farming, shipping millions of bushels of barley from his wharf at Playa del Rey. Inglewood was the first settlement to be carved out of the 25,000 acre Centinela Ranch in 1888 shortly after a railroad station had been built in the area. On February 8, 1908 Inglewood, with a booming 1,200 population, was incorporated as a city, but it was the earthquake of 1920 that put it on the map. People came to see the damage and stayed because of the wonderful climate. From 1920 to 1925, Inglewood was the fastest growing city in the United States. The Air Age began in 1927 when the Andrew Bennett Ranch was leased by Los Angeles and converted into Mines Field (later LAX). Charles Lindbergh flew the first passenger plane in with Will Rogers as a passenger and National Air Races were initiated in 1928 with Lindbergh as one of the flyers. Until World War II, Inglewood had been the hub of an agricultural area with the Inglewood High School Farm at Kelso and Inglewood Avenue an important part of the curriculum. Defense industries transformed it into an urban community when industrial activity, stimulated by the war, brought new workers and their families to the city. The national Space and Missile Systems program was undertaken in 1954, in the old St. John’s Catholic School at Manchester and Locust, when the U.S. Air Force established the Western Development Division. A team of military engineers and scientists developed the country’s first Intercontinental Ballistic Missile-the Atlas. During the 1960s and ’70s, Inglewood continued to grow and develop, taking on a “metropolitan” look. The City became racially integrated in both its residential and business communities; it was now the home of two major hospitals – Cantilena and Daniel Freeman; the “City of Champions” was now the site of Hollywood Park Racetrack, recently celebrating 50 years of championship horse racing, and the Forum, constructed in the late ’60s to become the home of the World Champion Lakers basketball team and the Kings hockey team, as well as featuring World Class Tennis played by the Strings, plus championship boxing.
