However, 1873 was the year that the town of Norwalk was born, serving as a passenger stop for the Anaheim Branch Railroad. Throughout the following century, the town saw a surge of development and growth with the addition of numerous facilities, including a school system and a number of factories in addition to several residences constructed across orchards, farms and dairies in the area.
