Compton, California

Compton is a city in southern Los Angeles County, California. Home to nearly 100,000 residents, Compton occupies 10.1 square miles southeast of downtown Los Angeles. The settlement was originally named Gibsonville, after one of the tract owners and was later renamed Comptonville. However, to avoid confusion with the Comptonville located in Yuba County, the name was shortened to Compton in 1869. Compton is one of the oldest cities in the county and on May 11, 1888, was the eighth city in California to incorporate. Neighborhoods in Compton include: Sunny Cove, Leland, Downtown Compton, and the Richland Farms.

Compton is known as the “Hub City” because of its unique position in almost the exact geographical center of Los Angeles County; Compton is strategically located along the Alameda Corridor, a passageway for 25% of all United States waterborne international trade. Compton is quickly emerging as a large industrial center in Los Angeles County for transit and distribution, business services, high technology, home and lifestyle products, metals, financial services, and textile manufacturing.
