A fruit stand with palms opened in 1927 at the corner of two dirt roads in Carson, Norwalk and Hawaiian Gardens. The name Hawaiian Gardens was thus born. The area was a refuge for people to buy or build a home during the Great Depression.[clarification needed] Many homes lacked basic modern conveniences.
Only Norwalk Boulevard was a paved road in the 1920s. The little town was all dirt roads for 35 years. The paving of roads was started immediately after the incorporation of the city in 1964. All streets south of Carson, between Pioneer and Norwalk, were paved by 1966. All streets were paved by 1968.
