What the Hal? Learn the history of Downey and the city's aerospace background

The city of Downey is nestled in-between Los Angeles and Orange counties and is often times considered part of the gateway cities. What makes Downey so interesting is it’s the birthplace of the aerospace industry—home to the Columbia Memorial Space Center.

Another fun fact—it’s also home to the oldest McDonalds restaurant. In this podcast we speak with Carol Rowland with “Keep Downey Beautiful” who talked about the city’s history and culture.
