Lomita, California, is a well-established community with a long, rich history and heritage. During the 1930s, it was known as the “Celery Capital of the World,” though it could have just as easily laid claim to the title “Strawberry Capital.” The prevailing occupation of residents was truck farming of eggs, fruits, and vegetables and the community remained relatively quiet until after World War II when the population surged. Adjacent cities tried to annex significant parts of Lomita, and in the 1950s, Torrance succeeded. Originally, the community comprised seven square miles but by the early 1960s, less than two square miles remained. To prevent further annexation, Lomita incorporated in 1964.
Today, Lomita is a charming little city situated on the easternmost section of the South Bay region of Los Angeles County. Home to roughly twenty thousand residents, it is one of the region’s fastest-growing communities. Though primarily residential, Lomita offers proximity to a multitude of recreational and economic opportunities. It is bordered by Harbor City and Torrance, both of which are significant employment centers and offer numerous shops, restaurants, and bars.
