Compton is one of the oldest cities in Los Angeles County and is centrally located, earning it the nickname Hub City. It was settled in 1867 by a group of Pioneer families who were traveling south in search of a better life. The settlers built a church and a schoolhouse, and in 1888 the city of Compton was incorporated.

On March 10, 1933, Compton was hit by the largest earthquake to ever devastate the area. The earthquake destroyed nearly all the city's original structures. Fortunately, most of the earthquakes to rattle the city since have been nearly imperceptible. Residents quickly began the process of rebuilding, and the population of Compton increased.

All of the city's public parks are nicely maintained. Kids here have plenty of things to do, and the population thrives on great food and community events. On the weekends they come together to watch kids play Little League games and listen to emerging musicians perform on the local scene.

Compton is a resilient community with a low median age. In fact, it's average age is 25 — compare that to the rest of the country's median age of 35. In addition, more single females live in Compton than in most other cities in the United States.
