Norwalk, California is a suburb of Los Angeles with more than 103,000 residents, according to the 2010 census. The population is predominantly white, but there is a sizable Asian community, too. Some of the area’s top employers include Metropolitan State hospital and Cerritos College. The median household income was $60,485 in 2010.
The founders of Norwalk moved to the area in the late 1800s shortly after California became a part of the United States. The town’s population and economy benefited from the Anaheim Branch Railroad, which was required to stop in Norwalk. The area’s rich farmland helped it develop into an important part of the dairy industry. In 1958, two military planes collided over the city, killing 47 servicemen and one civilian, who was struck by falling debris after the collision. Today, a plaque commemorates the disaster.
