Lynwood's history began in 1810 when Don Antonio Lugo got a grant of about 29,000 acres. After his death, this area was divided among his eight children, and Guadalupe Lugo got the area that is now Lynwood. It was later deeded to Heldman, who later deeded it to Mrs. Shields. This land kept changing hands until C.H. Sessions acquired it in 1902. He established a creamery, and named it after his wife Lynne Wood. In 1910, seven men came together to form Lynwood Company to attract potential investors to this region. Residential plots were sold for $500 to $800 in 1913, and since then the city began to take shape.
