As with the rest of the South Bay region, Del Aire was part of the expansive Spanish ranchos that dominated the area in the 1800s. The region was largely agricultural until the early 1900s, when the Los Angeles railroad was introduced. Del Aire and its surrounding communities gradually urbanized as more and more people took up residence here, particularly in the years following WWII.
