Slauson Lane

This 1906 street honors banker/developer/philanthropist Jonathan Sayre Slauson (1829-1905), a New Yorker who settled in Los Angeles in 1874 and founded the town of Azusa in 1887. (See Slauson Avenue for a more detailed biography.) Like neighboring Rindge Lane, named for Malibu owner Frederick Rindge, Slauson Lane was christened mere months after its honoree’s death, lending these two streets more local relevance and poignancy than north Redondo’s other streets that namedrop notable American capitalists: Rockefeller, Carnegie, Vanderbilt, etc.
