All About

Living In Compton, CA

The community of Compton has garnered national and worldwide renown for helping to shape the music scene of the early 1990s, though apartment renters here soon learn that the city's history and significance date back farther than that.

As one of the oldest cities in Long Beach, Compton has been making history in Southern California for years. Apartment renters can visit the Heritage House Museum, built in 1869 and the oldest structure in the city, to learn more about early settlements in Compton. The city became a thriving community of families seeking economic stability outside of the gold trade that dominated much of the rest of Southern California and became known as "Hub City" for its location at the heart of Los Angeles County. Over time, Compton became renown for its diversity and rich cultural landscape, which in later years helped contribute to music styles such as rap and hip-hip.

Today, apartment renters can appreciate all that Compton has to offer in terms of history and culture. Tomorrow's Aeronautical Museum is an award-winning flight school and interactive museum that works to energize youth and improve the community through aviation. Additionally, apartment renters often find inspiration at Compton's famous memorial to Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr., an architectural marvel and testament to the strength and dignity King displayed through his work and life.

Compton apartment residents also enjoy and take pride in the city's 500,000 square foot commercial facility, the Gateway Towne Center. The complex infused the city with new jobs and features numerous well-known shopping, dining and entertainment destinations.
