Lakewood, California, was sometimes called “an instant city” because it evolved from a lima bean agricultural center in 1950 to a well-developed city 10 years later. The city is a classic example of a post World War II American suburb. World War II veterans could get home loans with nothing down and a 4% interest 30-year mortgage. On the first day of home sales in March 24, 1950, over 200,000 people descended on the Lakewood Park sales office and more than 1,000 families qualified to purchase homes which is 30 per day on average. The monthly cost for the home buyer was $44 to $56 per month, which included principal, interest, and insurance.
Lakewood’s primary thoroughfares are generally boulevards with landscape medians and frontage roads on either side. The city is mostly made up of residential districts. Over 80,000 residents live in the city as of 2010.
Lakewood, the last city to incorporate in Los Angeles County since 1939, incorporated in 1954. It paved new ground when its citizens voted to contract for wide-ranging city services. It has been a pioneer among California cities to contract for services from Los Angeles County, other government agencies, and companies in the private sector. Following Lakewood’s lead, the cities of Cerritos, Bellflower, Walnut, and Diamond Bar, also adopted the so-called “Lakewood Pan” for providing services to private citizens, government agencies, and private industries.
The first Denny’s Restaurant was established in Lakewood in 1953. Harold Butler founded Danny’s Donuts which was renamed Denny’s Restaurant in 1959.
In 2005, Sports Illustrated named the City of Lakewood “Sportstown USA” for the State of California.
