Incorporation of Torrance came in 1921 and the city was named after Mr. Torrance. Incidentally, the first two residential avenues in Torrance was first Gramercy followed soon after by Andreo. These avenues are almost a hundred years old and in fact some of those homes along them have been built in 1912. This entire area is known as Old Town Torrance and plans are under way to classify the area as a historical district. Irving Gill was a renowned Californian architect and many of the historic buildings has been designed by him.
