Cudahy does not currently have a historic preservation ordinance.

This 1.2 square mile city located in southeast Los Angeles County conducted a citywide residential survey in 1984 that identified 21 structures.  While no survey updates have been completed since that time, the City has expressed interest in conducting an update in the near future.  Working toward that goal, the City has been building a collection of photos of the older properties in town.
