INGLEWOOD, CALIFORNIA OVERVIEW
Inglewood, is located in Los Angeles County and is part of the Los Angeles-Long Beach- Anaheim metropolitan area. According to the 2021 U.S. Census, Inglewood’s estimated population is 105,181. Inglewood is about 4 miles from Los Angeles International Airport. It is also, about 11 miles from the city of Los Angeles, 9.4 miles from Torrance, 21 miles from Long Beach, and about 43 miles from Orange County, California. Inglewood was incorporated as a city in 1908.
The Indigenous residents of the area were the Tongva Native Americans. The Tongva People inhabited approximately a 4000 mile territory in the Greater Los Angeles area. In 1771, Father Junipero Serra representing Spain, founded the San Gabriel Archangel Mission in the Los Angeles area. Father Junipero Serra referred to the Native Americans as the Gabrielino Indians. They have also been referred to as the Gabrielino-Tongva Tribe. The other tribes in the north and to the east of the Los Angeles area were the Chumash, Tataviam, Serrano and Cahuilla. The San Gabriel Mission used Indian labor and became wealthy, with orchards, vineyards and herds. Currently, Gabrielino families continue to live in the greater Los Angeles and Orange county region.
In 1821, Mexico gained its independence from Spain and began secularizing the California Missions and reallocating the mission estates as land grants. After a series of owners and land transactions, in 1885, Daniel Freeman ultimately purchased and combined Rancho Sausal Redondo and Rancho Aguaje de la Centinela and a part of these two ranchos became Inglewood. Freeman named the city after his homeland in Inglewood, Canada.
World War II brought defense manufacturers to Inglewood which eventually changed Inglewood from an agriculture based community into a racially diverse suburban community and workforce. Also, the growth of L.A. International Airport contributed to Inglewood’s economic growth.
Inglewood is known for many cultural and sporting events. It is home to the Forum which was known for major concert and sporting events until 1999. However, in 2014, Chase reopened the Forum for large indoor performances and events. In 2022, the Forum was renamed the “Kia Forum.” In 2022, the Sofi Stadium opened as home base for the Los Angeles Rams and Los Angeles Chargers, and it also hosted Super Bowl LVI.
