Nearly a century later, Atwood Sproul and brother, Gilbert Sproul bought what later became Norwalk on the condition a passenger stop on the railroad be built there. The station allowed potential Norwalk real estate buyers to visit the city with ease.
In the early 1900s, Norwalk was known as a dairy center as well as the home to the largest sugar beet farms in Southern California. Over time, these were replaced by more and more homes.
