Property Types (active listings)
Hawthorne, once occupied by the Shoshonian Indians, was part of a Sausal Redondo, named after a round clump of willows in the area. In 1887 several groups of investors, encouraged by the construction of a railroad being built, purchased large amounts of towns. One of these was the Hawthorne Land Company, which advertised Hawthorne as the town between the city and the sea.
By 1907 Hawthorne had grown to a thriving little town of over one hundred homes. It was incorporated in 1922. In 1939 the Northrop Grumman Corporation, as it is now known, moved to Hawthorne, drawing other companies seeking subcontracts.
With the growth of the aviation industry and the subsequent aerospace industry, Hawthorne became known as the Cradle of Aviation and enjoyed a boom for many years in both jobs and real estate. The plant closed in the late 1990s.

The city also offers space in its community garden to any resident who wishes to plant there.
