Description

William Lyons Home, Inc. is a California-based, residential home builder. William Lyons, a former U.S. Air Force pilot, founded the company in 1954, then called Luxury Homes.

The community was developed in late 1950s and 1960s, and it became one of the first housing developments to be racially integrated.
