Moving to Downey
Downey, California has many claims to fame. It's home to the site of the first Taco Bell, the world's oldest McDonald's, and the origins of the Apollo Space Program. Downey was originally a farming community, thriving on the prime climate that gave way to healthy fields of corn, castor beans, small grain, and deciduous fruit trees. At the turn of the century, this area boasted a department store, banks, shops, restaurants, a grammar school, and a high school.
Downey continued its rapid growth over the following decades, gaining a Sunkist packing plant, aircraft company, Civic Center Complex, and Embassy Suites Hotel. A $100 million expansion revitalized the Stonewood Center mall in 1990, and the continued partnership between the city and local industry has encouraged further revitalization.
