Paramount, California is bordered by Lynwood and Compton, and is part of Los Angeles county. Originally colonized by adventurers of New Spain, Paramount has a long and storied history dating back centuries. After the Mexican-American war, California was annexed into the United States, and Paramount’s name was changed and the area consolidated. Thus, Paramount became the modern town that we see today. Industry in the city has changed over the years, slowly moving from factory work and dairy production to mainly service sector jobs.
