Cudahy History

Cudahy was named after its founder, the meat-packing baron Michael Cudahy. About 2,800 acres of land, which was originally known as the Nadeau Ranch, was sold to Cudahy by Hinton in 1893. In the north of this land period was the Florence Avenue, while Santa Fe was in the west and Manchester in the south. This land was later divided into very large lots and resold to farmers so that they could have a vegetable garden, a fruit grove, a chicken coop or a horse stable. With increase in property values in the 1960s, a lot of Southerners and Midwesterners moved to the city of Cudahy in South California.
