Carson Real Estate
Carson, CA is located in Los Angeles County, California. Approximately 19 miles to the north is downtown Los Angeles, linked to Carson by Interstate Highway 110. Carson is primarily a manufacturing community. About half of its land mass is taken up by factories, refineries, and other industrial structures. After decades of existence as an unincorporated community of Los Angeles County, Carson was finally incorporated as a city in 1968 when its citizens took to the polls and voted to do so by a nearly 2-to-1 margin. On the same date, by a much narrower vote, the citizens chose the name Carson for their new city over the name Dominguez (these were the two leading family names in the city’s history). Following its incorporation, Carson acted quickly to enforce a strict landscaping and building code, resulting in modernizations and improvements in the city’s industrial parks and overall appearance.
Carson is famous for hosting the very first air show ever held in the United States. It took place in 1910; just seven years after the Wright Brothers made their first flight near Kitty Hawk, and was known as the “Great Air Meet.” The site where this show took place has since been declared a California historical landmark.
