Paramount, California

The city of Paramount occupies 4.8 square miles in Los Angeles County, California and is part of the Greater Los Angeles Area. Home to nearly 55,000 residents, Paramount boasts a balanced combination of residential, industrial, and commercial developments.

Before Paramount became a city in 1957, the area was comprised of two small communities called Hynes and Clearwater. The towns were home to several of dairies, which in their heyday had 25,000 cows. By the early 1930s, Hynes boasted the largest hay market in the world. While Paramount’s economy was based largely on the hay and dairy industries, the high cost of land led to their local demise. The last Paramount dairy closed in 1977. Paramount met the challenges of an evolving urban city. Accordingly, Paramount was named an "All-America City" by the National Civic League in 1988, and many of its innovative programs attracted state and national recognition. One of Paramount’s notable and enduring companies is the Paramount Petroleum Corporation. It is the largest seller of asphalt in California.
