The History of Downey
When Downey was founded in 1873, the developers might well have used the
slogan of today's Chamber of Commerce -"Downey . . . Future Unlimited."
Modern history of Downey begins on October 13, 1873, when a 126 acre lot
of Los Nietos township was filed at the Los Angeles recorders office by
the Downey Land Association. The townsite was called Downey, after John
G. Downey, California Civil War governor and president of the land company.
In the following year, on
April 15, 1874, the first train reach Downey when the Southern Pacific
Railroad began its run between Los Angeles and San Diego.
From 1865 to 1875,
Downey progressed from a crude frontier to an agricultural and stock raising
community. The fertility of the soil, abundant water supply and temperate
climate attracted considerable attention.
The two original business
centers, "Gallatin," and "College Settlement," consolidated
near the new railroad in 1874. College Settlement was built around the
Methodist "Los Nietos Collegiate Institute," first protestant
college in the area.
The Overland Stage
with its four horses, made daily deliveries of mail and passengers until
outmoded by the "iron horse."
During the 1880's,
the Los Angeles county fair was held in Downey, attracting visitors from
a wide radius.
John G. Downey
John G. Downey, who became governor at the early age of 32, was born in
Ireland. After he emigrated to America he studied pharmacy, engaged in
the drug business in Ohio and finally was lured to California during gold
Arriving at San Francisco with only 10 dollars in coin, he pawned his
watch to get transportation to the diggings. But after working in water
to his knees, he decided that mining wasn't for him. So Downey determined
to go to Los Angeles and start a drug store, even though he was warned
that it was too healthy a place for such a venture. Moving
