Have you heard of the City of Hawthorne, California?

Have you heard of Hawthorne, California? If not enjoy this short post about it.

For the past two decades, I have always enjoyed driving through the City of Hawthorne. Periodically I would stop at store, yes you guessed it, for me it would be a grocery store. The main road: Hawthorne Blvd. is conveniently designed so you can make turns to your left or to your right if something caught your attention and often it has for me.

Over the years I enjoyed seeing the sign, which lets you know, that you are entering the City of Hathorne. The past few years I noticed more and more signs mentioning that they are an Aerospace friendly city. Hence, I did a bit of research and thought I would share here.

Did you know that Space X is headquartered in Hathorne, CA? The company was founded in 2002 by Elon Musk I have not realized that Space X since 2022 is the largest employer of Hawthorne, CA. I remember reading about rockets and starships spacecraft being produced but had no idea how close I was to this. Now reflecting back over the past ten years I have taken photos of the sky with what looked like satellite or some sort of Aircraft flying in the sky. Now it makes sense to me.

I did a bit of research who the top ten employers are in Hathorne, CA. Well, check out the photo above and the second on the list surprised me as well. Well, I would not have guessed that one either. The Amazon Fulfilment Center must be quite large to have that many employees.

Now this inspired me to do a little historical research. I was interested how the city came about. Turns out Hathorne was founded in 1905 as the “Hawthorne Improvement Company” by real estate developers. B.L. Harding and H.D. Lombard. Just a side trivia Harding’s daughter was born on the 4th of July just as the New England author Nathaniel Hawthorne. Hence the developers decide to name the small village after him. Feel free to check it out Wikipedia will confirm this.

Hope you enjoyed this glimpse or should I say highlight of the City of Hathorne. On a side note, we have friends from the east coast that share the same last name as one of the developers. I will have to ask if they are related.

My knowledge of CA cities is very limited. I do appreciate you sharing your experience and taking the time to undertake additional research.  Wow, 6000 employees for SpaceX is beyond imagination. Now another bit of trivia to add my gray matter. Thank you Endre Barath, Jr.

Endre I thought the Elon Musk had pulled out of CA. Hawthorne must be business friendly if he is keeping Space X there.

Hi Endre:

Nice overview of the City of Hawthorne. I knew about SpaceX being there but wasn't aware it was the largest employer. Seems to me we have driven through Hawthorne although I can't say specifically why - perhaps a restaurant?

It's certainly convenient for LAX.

Jeff
