Vernon is a small city about 5 miles south of Downtown Los Angeles composed mostly of industrial and commercial areas. In 2001, Vernon set aside $60 million to fund community projects and established a city housing commission. Vernon is a historic site where a battle was fought during the Mexican-American war of 1846, ending hostilities in the area. Vernon was incorporated in 1905 with the intent of attracting railroads and industry, and soon thereafter a segment of railroad attached to the main lines was built. A Studebaker factory was built in 1938 and produced 64 cars per day until it was closed in 1956. Vernon also had its own baseball team from 1909 until 1925 named the “Vernon Tigers”, who played in the Pacific Coast League as a minor league team. In 2008, Vernon was named “Most Business Friendly City” in L.A. County by the Los Angeles County Economic Development Corporation, for Cities with less than 50,000 residents. Surrounding communities include Huntington Park, Central Alameda, East Los Angeles, Commerce, and Maywood.
