The Indigenous residents of the land that is now Torrance were the Tongva Native Americans. It was originally part of the Spanish land grant of Rancho San Pedro.

Jared Torrance formed the Dominguez Land Company, and hired the Olmstead Brothers firm to design the planned community. From 1912 to 1921, Torrance was a privately held city. Torrance was incorporated as a city in 1921, and a five-member Board of Trustees was established.
