In 1919, a popular young woman who worked for the real estate corporation developing a 2,300-acre ranch into home tracts near Los Angeles agreed to lend her name to bothproperty and posterity. At a spot located only a few miles southwest of the new city s downtown, Miss May Wood s moment arrived when about 300 people turned out to see Maywood s dedication. Thousands more helped thecommunity grow as Los Angeles sprawled throughout the 20th century, and Maywood has been a thriving little square-mile-plus ever since. It has flourished while facing such challenges as a bitter effort to dissolve the city in 1924, a sweep-out of gamblers in the early 1930s, and various infrastructure improvements over the years."
